Hi Monica.  Just listened to one of your videos.  Very nice.  So, I see you are in Montreal?  That makes things much easier, if you are still looking to sell your rosewood dulcimer.  I've found nothing yet.  I could drive up there from Maine, it's 6 hours and we've been meaning to visit Montreal for some time.  Maybe you're having second thoughts however.  Let me know when you can.  cheers, Victoria

Hi Monica,

 The Dulcimer is on the right is a "June Apple", built by Carl Gotzmer, It is referred to as a hybrid "Cellomer",

and yes quite different. It is 43 1/2 inches long, 8 inches wide and 2 1/4 deep. It produces quite a deep and rich tone compared to standard dulcimer.

 I am actually having a custom 6 string built by Carl right now, due for delivery at end of this week. Again quite different as it's dimensions are the same as the Cellomer, much bigger voice.

 The left one is actually a "possum board" I built for the Cellomer, then added some wood burned celtic patterns to it.

 I build my own possum boards for all my dulcimers.

 I have attached a photo of the 6 string.


Would love to hear it, do you have any recording. I don't see any photo attachment

Hi Monica, don't worry about being new to it! Sounds like you are making great progress.I haven't played in quite some time - my dulcimer is sorely in need of new strings! - and while I have played dulcimer for a number of years, I am not very advanced at it, though would love to learn a lot more. Great you are doing celtic and interested in classical. I love both. Thanks for the welcome ! I am very excited to get settled. :)

Hi Monica, thanks for your message ! I am just in the process of relocating from Vancouver. It is a very long time since I lived in Montral and then not for very long, so it is going to be a brand new adventure. This month I am finishing things up in Vancouver, but in May and onwards I would love to connect about music events or dulcimer get togethers !

Hi Monica,

Thank you for the friend request! I am happy to be your friend!

I am also excited for you as you begin this new adventure in the dulcimer world. I have been playing for a number of years now, and it still excites me when I figure out something new. I can have a really bad day, and a few minutes with a dulcimer makes everything better. I look forward to hearing about your progress and hope you find as much joy in the dulcimer as I do!Smile.gif

Your friend, Cindy

Welcome, Monica, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. I certainly understand how it would "pull at your heartstrings." It can bring a laugh or a tear. Hope you enjoy it here.
