Greg,

Thanks so much for your two messages regarding the Mattesons and the Nathan Hicks Dulcimer. I have just returned from a couple of weeks of teaching, at Western Carolina University and John C. Campbell Folk School, and am busy catching up! I'll take a look at the You Tube segment soon.

Greg thanks for the interest. The Prichard is 350.00, plus shipping. I ask for a third down to cover costs and the balance is due when ready to ship. I look forward to talking with you more about the possibility of building you a Prichard , they are great sounding instruments, and are exact copies of the originals. Thanks Kevin.
