( all walnut Bob Lazenby dulcimer )
I notice in your photo, the dulcimer looks like it takes up the whole table, how long is the VSL? I saw on your page, you have a Folks Roots, is it one with the 29" VSL? Is it hard on the hand & thumb going that short distance from a 27.5 or 28 to a 29'ish?
My Bob Lazenby is a 28.5" VSL. The FolkRoots is a 27" VSL. I don't have any problem going from one to the other, but I have large hands too (for a girl). The FolkRoots/Folkcraft dulcimers can be ordered with whatever VSL you want (within a range). Very easy to do with Folkcraft's website and ordering process. They are very accomodating. You can even give them a call. Hope this helps.
