Dan, Wow! I'm glad you are still experimenting. Does the heart good to see someone trying new things or old things in a new way. Thanks for sharing!
Wow - fascinating!!! Thank you for sharing this, Dan!
Doggone cool, Dan. I hope I can get to Berea next year and maybe get to try it!
A manual hurdy-gurdy! Different
Wow, Dan. That's terrific. You obviously are a pretty smart dude. Impressive.
All I can say is WOW. Dan, this is totally MARVELOUS. seriously, you are a genius!!I just LOVE it... it's like a magical bagpipe dulcimer!
I think you've improved the sound very well, Dan.
When you're done messing around with it, you could slip it up on Mr. Irwin's museum wall some dark night. Nobody would suspect a thing.
Many thanks guys!
That's wonderful, Dan. I inherited a hurdy-gurdy/dulcimer hybrid instrument that my uncle had someone down in Texas make for him, but it really doesn't work and just hangs on a wall. Your wheel gets a really nice, consistent sound. Nice work! It sure sounds like it's taken you a lot of fiddling around to get this hog fiddle sounding right.
I really enjoyed that - GREAT job !
Nice job... Robert...
I sure like this sound Dan. Many times I've wished my drones were smoother. Hard to achieve with a flatpick.
That's great. I'm a hurdy gurdy lover and it sounded good to me.
I heard your clip on Facebook and the balance between melody and drones is now much better.
I think you have come up with a great idea that is well worth persevering with - easy for me to say I know.
NO, NO, please not a wall.
