Jack, that is a nice sounding dulcimer no matter which way you go. Good job!
Very nice Jack!!!
My baritone designs are what I call my "specials" because I make them as my "perfect" design. They a a bit deeper for a full sound, but they setup and play just like my standard dulcimers with the same VSL and and very little additional weight.
Jack, are those two different dulcimers or the same one with different strings? The coloring looks completely different, but since you mention different strings and not a different dulcimer, I wonder if the color difference is just from the camera and lighting. I really like the deep tone of the baritone here. Nice playing!
Definitely a difference. Sounds good and looks beautiful
