Here's a couple of pictures of my hammered dulcimer, one of two I made in the mid 1980s. I was taught by Martyn Banks of Oakwood Instruments so this is an Oakwood Dulcette 12/11 in all but name. Rock maple frame, teak faced plywood soundboard and back, Honduras mahogany bridges and fittings. The bridge tops are delrin. The hammers are hand carved mahogany with bubinga grips, the roses are maple cut to a design I filched from somewhere or other.
Maybe, for your next project, you'll post a link to a track or two of you playing some tunes on your very own Dulcimer?
You might have to wait a while for that Dick because I don't really play it! I played a little when I first made it but always seemed to have other things to do, I didn't have a digital tuner in those days either so tuning it was a real pain. One of the reasons I've joined the forum here is to kick start me into learning to play again.
I'm not that good at recording things either to be honest, I get all nervous and don't play as well as I can. Here's a video I made to illustrate a particular fingering on the concertina, which given my nervous fumbling probably did more harm than good!
