Posted a response to "Wound versus Plain string for bass":
"It eliminates most of that awful sound the bass strings makes when the finger slides up or down the string.  The tuning does not change."

Dan thanks for the article - I have always admired you Coast Guard folks above all the services. You go out when no one else does, at a huge cost to your own safety and lives sometimes.

After I read the comments about Gibson dulcimers, I started thinking about getting another instrument. Gotta be careful, though, as things like that tend to be like eating peanuts, if one is not careful

I have two made by a local luthier that I really like. One is made from cherry wood, and the other is made with a cedar top with koa on the sides and bottom. He left an open spot on the finger board where the strum dip usually is for better resonance. And it really does resonate! Plus, it's a six string. The trade-off is that it is a little more difficult to keep in tune

I may have an interest in your proposed tradebut I was hoping to avoid packing and shippingit any distance. I used to sell some Shopsmith woodworking components on Ebay andthe packing used to drive me crazy for concern over of shipping damage and these were mostly steel parts.

I will think about it and let you know-any photosif I decide to pursue

I think NC headphones were originally developed for airplane personnel weren't they, and extended to other noisy environments later.

Hi Dan:

I don't really remember right now -- I have not played it in more than a year and the instrument is still packed away. On an instrument that short I would usually use something heavier, like 25-14-12-12.

The intonation isn't perfect, but I do enjoy the instrument's voice.

Hi Dan: for years I didn't know, though they appeared on eBay frequently. I'd though they may have been made by Paul Pyle, but then I cam across an identical dulcimer with a small booklet, itself with a picture of the same dulcimer, with the name "Jim Miller" in the title. This eBay ad says he was in Branson, MO:

Hey Dan, thanks for the friend request. Seriously, thanks for the buy offer, but I was really just kidding about selling it. For what I have in it, I'd like to just hang on to it. Looks nice on a wall, and I can also use it as a student dulicmer in a crunch. But hey, anytime you want to ride over this way and play a little just let me know ahead of time.

How far do you live from Marrianna, Fl.? I've drove the 100 miles south to Marrianna three times on the 2nd Sat. to jam with a dulicmer club. Wonderful folks. Might be something you might be interested in.

Thanks for being a friend.

Terry
