ohoh...I was saposed to go to bed HOURS ago. I loved the sound of this. Is there record of more "Dulcigurdy's" made anywhere? Was it done years ago or is this the first created? How about put nygut strings on the droners. they can stretch. I would like to make one of these...REALLY. Did you get the pattern from somewhere or made from your creative head? wow. wayyyyyyyyy toooooo much fun. 10 hours from my home. I'm gonna come visit that town of Norris, Tenn. aloha, irene
Wow! This is very cool! Love the beautiful sound of this, nice!
I LOVE THIS! Didn't know there was such a thing as a dulcigurdy, and now I am smitten... Thank you so much for sharing! Just lovely!
Very nice. I have a failed attempt at a dulcigurdy hanging on my wall. That's about all its good for. Good on you for making this one work. It sounds surprisingly good! Nice job!
Many thanks to you all folks!
Dan, that was too cool!
I made this piece, it is a one off. Watch the video in the link below for a description.
Fascinating project! Somewhere someone has to have figured out a fretted hurdy gurdy. Wow imagine the music that would make! Thanks for the video!
What a coincidence! Ariane and I were just discussing hurdy gurdy but I did not know there was a fretted type! Who makes this instrument? I would LOVE to have one!
I agree with the group: this is a magical, amazing sound!
Beautiful! The drone came through the speakers of my computer like a chorus of pipers. The effect was mesmerising.
As Ariane said, magical is indeed the word for this.
It reminds me of Old Regular Baptist hymn singing where there is such a power in the drone.
Live the sound of your instrument, Dan.
The sound of this instrument is really very impressive and magical, Dan
I love this sound Dan!
