Congrats ! I just bought my first one today. It's cherry as well.

Yours looks very nice ! Enjoy !

Congratulations to you as well!  I am really happy with the sound of the cherry - sweet and mellow, just what I was hoping for.

Congrats on your new baby! The two Ron Gibson dulcimers that I've played were both really fine instruments.

And Mike Casey's book is probably the most comprehensive dulcimer technique manual around.

Enjoy!

Too funny, last week I didn't own a dulcimer and now I have two!

Last week I built a Hughes dulcimer kit, I posted about that on the Makers group.

Today a Ron Gibson cherry hourglass dulcimer came to live with me and it is just gorgeous.  I actually did an unboxing, or more like an uncasing video on You-Tube.  Here is the link:

Check out this beauty!  I have been practicing right and left hand scales as in Mike Casey's "Hands-On Dulcimers" which came today as well.  I also found the tabs online for  Ode to Joy which I really like playing on my ukulele so was glad to track that down.  It's gonna be a fun, musical summer in my home!
