Congratulations, would love to see some pictures!
Will Singleton dulcimer arrived!
The "Uncle Will" Singleton dulcimer built by John Knopf arrived today!
For being a relatively small, shallow dulcimer, the sound is louder, deeper and more resonant than expected. "Favor" (John names all his dulcimers) rings out with a voice all its own. "Favor" is also a handsome little devil...2 cherry diamond-shaped inlays decorate the fretboard, and the nut, bridge, and pegs are walnut which accents the light colored poplar of the rest of the dulcimer. A scroll headstock and staple frets (no 6+ fret) complete the picture.
John was very pleasant to deal with...he answered all my questions promptly and courteously. He also knows a thing or two about building dulcimers...I highly recommend him!
Anyway, as soon as I can, I'll post some pictures and a sound sample (this might take a bit of doing).
