I think the instrument passed the sound test with flying colors!  It sounds great!  Bright and clear and the low drone has a surprising deepness in tone.

Thank you Dusty! I wasn't sure how it would sound, but was pretty sure the Bubinga & Butternut combo would be crisp and wouldn't make a 'muddy' sound given the large sound chamber. Now to learn how to strum the thing properly!!

Strumelia:

That sounds wonderful Bob... very European zither-like and traditional. Little wonder that scheitholts like that were used so much for playing hymns... it has an inner power to it. 

Thank you Strmelia! I had fun making this instrument, and having fun playing it too! The two courses of strings are a bit to get used to, as well as developing a new strumming style, but it is worth learning. I want to try playing some old hymns on it soon :-)

Thanks Elvensong. I tuned it to DGd on the fingerboard and again on the free strings. I guess it can be tuned in a variety of ways, like the Mountain Dulcimer.

Really nice sound Bob. How's it tuned?
