Tell us about your VERY FIRST dulcimer
General mountain dulcimer or music discussions
Actually, Jethro Amburgey passed away in 1971. By that time he had made and numbered over a thousand instruments. The signature on this one is "M J Amburgey," dated 3-7-76, and is #42. So I would guess it was made by another member of his family, perhaps a son. Someone else who knows more about this stuff than I do can bring more information to the table.
No matter. It looks like a very nice instrument in excellent condition. Enjoy!
Yep...that one was made by Morris, Jethro's son. Jethro was my 2nd Great Uncle, Morris my cousin. My Aunt Mavis has one of Jethro's and I have one of Morris' - mine is dated 5/27/99 #190....
