Neat little story...
General mountain dulcimer or music discussions
I have a Bob Fletcher dulcimer, which he claims is a copy of the Audrey Hash original , he worked with her and her father for a while. There was a feature article about Bob in the DPN some years ago. The instrument I have (circa 1984) was originally fretted in 'an old style !' but has subsequently been refretted to equal temperament, not by me I would add, and has 'bead' fine tuners. Of course I had to make a couple just to see if they worked....... they did !
