i found West's obit. but no real information.  He passed away in 2016.  Apparently a Mountain View AR native.  The one currently for sale on EBay certainly looks like a good example of 1980s dulcimer design and appears to be good craftsmanship.

Not a word on Henry C Desler, Dessler or Dressler

Looking for info on two dulcimer makers. 1 is Author West, 2 Henry C Desler. I have looked through some archives and books and haven't beenbable to find anything about them or quality of build.
