Joe I do make the elliptical shaped dulcimer. I do not have one to sell at the moment. I can build one for you with a choice of scale lengths and frets. body depth is 2.75". Deeper is not louder. Sorry I am unable to send a private message... Robert..

I live in  N. Houston, Spring. I am from new orleans but here now, lovely place on a pond to watch sunsets,  the herons fly in and a place to strum.

 Hi, Just reading your posts. I saw you were in the Navy. When my husband and I lived in Lafayette, he would need to drive into Baton Rouge for his meetings in the Coast Guard. We were with USL (what it was called back then). Many happy memories from Lafayette and the surrounding area.

Thanks Joe! Sorry that I just now saw your note, but we've been away at Dulcimerville and then a little vacation on the way back. I will see what I can do about a video, and we would LOVE to make the Lagniappe festival in the future!

Here's a big Louisiana (Shreveport) howdy! My wife and I are seriously trying to figure out how we can get down to Lafayette for one of your dulcimer shindigs on a Saturday morning. We know where the Jean Lafitte National Park building is, we're just hoping we can make the schedule work for us sometime soon.
