Just home from a week in Branson, Missouri. Visited Cedar Creek dulcimer & got some strings& music. Spring Break cleaned out the store, so they are working to build up inventory. Spent one day on a trip to Mountain View, Ark. to the Dulcimer Shop. Spent a couple hrs. trying out dulcimers & visiting. I chose a 26" standard, spruce over walnut built by Jim Woods. This Mcspadden is a wonderful instrument. I would recommend a trip there to any dulcimer enthusiast.
Thanks ACN. The catalpa is an extremely lightweight wood but also tough. It has a very strong but very mellow sound. Extra care is needed on the finish though as the grain is pretty open
