Blair fret compare - original Jumbos! installed on a dare?

Instruments- discuss specific features, luthiers, instrument problems & questions

Curious to know if anyone has "Jumbo" frets on their dulcimers?

I've found this Jan. '93 Mark Blair Dulcimer #637 (missing the nut) and in the process of getting it back in playing shape.

It has HUGE ! fretsĀ  - . 105w close to Dunlop 6130/6140 - especially compared to my '85 McSpadden with classic "mandolin" style wire 0.80w 0.39h

A label reads "Custom Built for Lindsay Ruth Harris" perhaps this was a custom request. Oddly? this was strung with an old, rusty set of 10-10-20 very light strings!
