Bob... thanks for your comment on my new galax model. I knew there had to be a few local folks in SJ that played dulcimer. Don't you get tired of always having to explain what the thing is to everybody. good luck with the small pipes, I like small, northumberland and uileann pipes, anything with drones. Im also into 18 century history, reenacting is cool but too expensive a hobby for me. Being a farmer limits my free time for fun stuff... thanks again... Robert

I would love to stop by for a visit some day when you've got a few free moments. I suppose it would be a twenty minute drive right down ol' Rt 55 to your location.

I've not met a dulcimer builder before, and it would be a privileged to meet you!

Hello Bob... sorry I could not get back to you sooner. Yes Id be glad to meet you. I have a large collection of instruments your free to play. I can generally make time to meet whenever its convenient for you. most likely weekday afternoons... Robert..
