Sorry to post in wrong place but have not been on fotmd since the change.  Will send photo of setup a bit later.  ToneGen is the generator that I use but any will do.  I think the noise and vibration tend to align the molecules and shake any embedded sawdust loose and gives a very round tone.  Remember not to leave the instrument unattended unless secured.  Once you start, you can feel the scroll and get a sense of how muchibration you are getting.  Another method is the Mplucker that we developed here in spokane.  Let me know if you need additional info as happy to discuss with you and find another "convert".

Thanks Alan. Glad you enjoyed it. I'm hoping to work out a duet for dulcimer and N.A. flute soon. Thinking they might sound very ice together.

AlanHi, it's Geoff here. About the Nonsuch weekend. It's a paid event with tutors and there's still spaces for all abilities, including complete beginners. If you just want to pop in and see everyone during one day, then I'm sure we can sort something if you let us know quickly. Email address is:reeve-black_revells@msn.comHope to see you.Geoff and Anne

Hello Alan and a belated welcome, I must have missed your original 'join up'. Good to find another UK maker, be better if you lived a tad nearer ! I hope that you are able to sort your computer problems out soon, this is a good source of shared info on both making and playing, too good to miss !JohnH
