The Traditional Appalachian Dulcimore Maker. I'm in my 11th year and just completed the 235th + instrument and over 2,180,000 listens on Soundcloud. I have studied the old masters and grow closer to the sharp iron and wood philosophy every day.

Thanks, Dan. After my initial confusion I figured it out. This is my first dulcimer with the smaller fret board. I have 3 other dulcimers. Just didn't expect D to go to D# then to E.

Hi Dan.  Just found out about Hindman. Sure wish I could!!!!  But will be up here in Northern KY preparing farm for winter.  Must  put it on schedule for next year.  Will check in for your pictures and activities.  Enjoy all in Hindman!

I was a great time! Loved spending time with Don Pedi and Carrie Norris!

Robin Thompson:

Dan, I'm intrigued by the sound of your nylon-strung dulcimer.  Did you just put nylon on a dulcimer or did you build with a mind that it'd be strung with nylon?  

I hope you and your loved ones have had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!  

Thanks!  

Yes Robin it was made for the Nylgut strings. They have a very different dynamic to them verses the music wire. The action needs to be very high for the slack nature of them and intonation is very different due to the diameter.

Dan, your "transitional piece" looks and sounds great!  The banjo-y, plunk-y vibe is really something special.  And the slides can be heard, too.  Really nice! 

Thank you!

Dan you responded to a problem I have with my dulcimer's tuning pegs and you said you would look at it and quote me a price. I tried to email you but a problem with the message. If you can tell me when you are available and where you are my husband and I could bring it to you. Thank you and Happy New Year
