Hello, Jack,

I see you are in Salem. I live out in the Hollins area. I recently became interested in the scheitholt after learning about them at the dulcimer display in the History Museum of Southwest Virginia. If you have one available, I would love to come look at it and learn more about these historical instruments. I assume you work out of your house, but if you have a shop, please let me know. Like you, I love the history of our region. I have participated as a "ghost" in every one of the 17 Salem Museum Ghost Walks, and I used to work as a seasonal interpreter at Explore Park. Did your friend who first introduced you to the dulcimer work at the Hoffhoger house?

G'day again Jack. I don't see a mid sized Scheitholdt on your Etsy shop site. Therefore this is probably a silly question, but do you have one built for sale at the moment?

Thanks Helen in Oz.

G'day again Jack. I may be in a position to buy a Scheitholdt sooner than October. Afterwatching your video again I have a quick question...Given the high soundboard and the full strum required to catch the four drones is it possible to play one in the sitting position used for a standard md, or is it necessary to stand.

Thanks Helen

Thanks Jack. I will start squirelling some money away. I hope to order one in about October for delivery a couple of months after Christmas. When I play md in public people often ask about where the md came from originally. It would be great to show them the real deal. Thanks for getting back to me. Helen

G'day Jack. I just saw a youtube clip Leslie posted of you playing what is now her Scheitholdt. Can I ask how much a basic one would cost and if you offer payment by installments (I realise not all luthiers sell that way). Thanks Helen.

One of these days Jack I am going to own one of the Chestnut Dulcimer's I think it is only right to have a Dulcimer made from wood that has the same name as meGrin.gif

Hi Jack,

Look forward to you coming to the Crooked Road Dulcimer Festival. You might like to bring along any dulcimers you might have available. I see that you have a few Native American Flutes. You might want to bring them as well. I play NA flute and usually travel with a few.

See you Thursday, Marsha

Jack, thank you for friend request, delighted to accept ! I did not make the comment specificaly to crib information from you about your Scheitholt, I was impressed by the apparent quality of the instrument, and the fact that I had only just posted on ED seeking information seemed too good a coincidence to overlook ! Like you, I get pleasure from playing on instruments that I have made (no flutes here tho', just mtn dulcimers, hammered dulcimers, and psaltries) and have started collecting info with a view to making a scheilhot, and would be more than happy to include any detail you are prepared to send me.

my regards

John

Hope you can come to the UK next year when you've made the break with the demon work.

Bristol (UK) Folk festival was great - two sold out MD workshops and a stall which seemed to be constantly busy with players and would-be players from 5 years upwards!

Maybe see you when we're in the States in June. Shall be at Dulcimerville and then touring NC and VA for a week or so.

Geoff and Anne

Thanks for the comment on the Scottish version of the Blackest Crow, Jack. And I hope you enjoy a visit to Scotland, Its a very beautiful country. The western highlands are glorious, given good weather, and spectacularly wet if you don't!

The extreme south west corner where I was born and raised, is also very pretty, and as most people who travel from the south drive straight past it heading north, it is also very quiet and unspoilt. There are a good number of folks there with the same name as your wife, but they tend to spell it McCrae. If you do make it over get in touch. I can perhaps give you some ideas where to go/not go.

Best wishes,

Doug
