More fancy pegheads, including some real works of carving art. I'm sorry my notes weren't more complete to note all makers' names! Perhaps a few can be identified by folks who recognize a distinct, 'signature' style.
Mountain dulcimer pegheads will need at least three entries! (6 ea) Here’s the first… Try finding even a fraction as much variation in the pegheads of guitars, mandolins, fiddles, ETC!
More variations, mostly self-explanatory. Coming next: Closer look at peg-heads and similar for sound holes; older dulcimers and zithers; dulcimer relatives; whatnot. All 'by and by.'
Years ago, I traveled a crazy amount to play and teach dulcimer. Seeing endless variety in the instruments, I took a lot of pictures - slides to be specific. I finally got ~400 digitized and I’ll post a few of them here in coming weeks.
Dog life imitates dulcimer art! Both are singing! Coming soon: Dozens unto hundreds of pictures of dulcimers and dulcimer players, recently scanned to digital from slides from the 80s! Historic and hysteric. C U!
