Carl Gotzmer, June Apple Dulcimers, Was trying to send a private message but oh well, to complicated for me. 

We had talked before about his dulcimers, there had been some discussion back and forth about students building his dulcimers and how involved he was/is. Also some concern over the fretting.  I have had some phone conversation with him at length, and found out some information, It was funny the conversation started as I was in the early process of having a custom built by him.

 Carl has  a student luthier, who is an art student, among other things. He has taught her how to carve head stocks, but he is always involved in construction. His wife is the fret expert and is very specific about fret placement. 

 We spent a considerable time talking dulcimers, dulcimer history, and other makers work.

  So while their seemed to be a possible conflict as to whether it was an advertisement for a particular builder, I'll leave price out of it, as there are instruments available that don't make the web site, his prices are very reasonable, to pricey, but you get what you pay for!!

 So always a fan, and will always recommend June Apple Dulcimers.

Hi Bee, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.

Ben

Thanks for the welcome Ben,

Learning is what I am all about. I'm like a big ol' sponge as I read through all of these discussions and look at the pretty dulcimer pictures. I am grateful to have found such a great resource and community of folks.

Happy good wishes to you and yours Ben,

Hey Bee Lick Farm, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us. You into beekeeping?

Howdy Jim, thanks, and yeah, what a wonderful community of folks.

We're just starting out with the bees, hoping to make it through the first winter with them.

Here in Kentucky, we call tributary creeks a "lick". On our little homestead property, the bottomland where our home and farm stuff is located, is nestled between two such creeks. Bee Lick runs right through our back yard before it connects to the other creek. The road that runs by here follows the creek and is named Bee Lick Rd. We figured that with a name like that, 'tis only natural that we try to raise some bees.

If you're ever in the neighborhood, stop on by for a tour of the place and maybe we can jam some dulcimer. Come mid-summer and bring a basket, we'll load you up with some nice fresh veggies. While not so much a real, production type "farm", we're not quite just a backyard garden either. We try to plant enough for us to last all year, enough to keep the deer happy (they help themselves to anything they they can get into), and enough to share with friends and neighbors.

Thanks for the welcome and happy playing to you and yours,

 - Tony
