Fooling around with my newest dulcimer acquisition - a very pretty David McKinney dulcimer made of Hawaiian koa, Sitka spruce, Honduran mahogany and South American ebony.

Thank you Bob. Yes, the dulcimer has a false bottom separated from the actual bottom by those little ebony "feet".  The idea is that this allows that false bottom to vibrate freely without being damped by my lap.

Beautiful tune, and well played. Does the dulcimer have a "second" bottom?

Thank you so much Robin and Paula! I appreciate you taking the time to comment, and I'm glad you enjoyed the tune.  And Paula - I''ll work on improving Mango's pitch! (he's my sun conure you're hearing in the video.)  :)

Thanks Marg and JK.  John -I completely agree; there is no sense in keeping instruments around that I am not playing. More and more it seems I'm gravitating to a two-dulcimer set up where I have one in DAA and one in DAD. With the DAD dulcimer, quick retuning to DGD or DAC give me lots of options, and with the DAA, a quick retune to EAA also gives me an easy way to play A tunes with the entire fretboard (rather than eliminating a large swatch of options by capoing at the 4th fret, or playing A tunes in DAD where you're more limited).

Anyway, there are still a bunch for sale, so if you know anyone looking for some great dulcimers, please point them my way. :)

Beautifully done BG!  We've recently thinned our herd as well.  It seems a shame to keep unplayed instruments that could be bringing joy to others.

Beautiful in playing and sound, enjoy your new dulcimer
