I have a couple more dulcimers since I last posted!
I have a Cripple Creek "Aspen Leaf," which is shaped rather like a Galax dulcimer--more of an oval than a teardrop. Came from eBay and needed some work to get it playable. But I love the leaves-and-vines soundholes, and it sounds good now.
And, a no-name dulcimer, also from eBay, all mahogany, built by a shipwright.
I previously forgot to mention that I have two "travel size" dulcimers, one from the Dulcimer Factory and one by Rugg and Jackel.
Most of mine are diatonic, and I'm thinking of having the 6+ fret added to a couple of them.
Sounds like your family is growing.
The 6+ fret is quite useful.
