That looks like a Thomas dulcimer that has had machine tuners and full width frets put on...what is it? Is that the dulcimer being played in the video?

Hi Robin, yes that's the Preselis, just above our place. And I do know Ceri - used to play with him in a band, Pibe Bach a few years ago.

Hi John,

That's a lovely looking and soundingdulcimer Smile.gif And a beautifully playedarrangement!

And I think I recognise those hills in the video - Is that the Preseli Mountains?

You must know Ceri Rhys Mathews from your pipe playing (there can't be many Welsh pipers!!!). I went to a few local tune sessions he was running near Dolgellau last year and took a Galax dulcimer, which worked pretty well as a sessions instrument. Most of the tunes that were played came from the booksBLODAU'R GRUGand CADW TWMPATH. I've not looked at those tunes for a while but I think I can remember a few like Y Delyn Newydd, Ffidl Ffadl, Machynlleth, Bwlch Llanberis, Difyrrwch Corbett o Ynysmaengwyn and a few more. I really should re-visit those tunes Smile.gif
