Ronda and James: instrument made locally in north Mississippi by Mr. Bobby Dodd. He's been making 'em for 15 years, and buys the wood from local Amish people. He only had hourglass style when I was looking. But he had many mixes of several wood choices. I tried most all of them and thought the Cherry had the best sound of all. The cedar looked the best, but I don't think that's as important to me. I was told Obrien or McSpadden was the standard. But Mr. Dodd is not in it for the profit because his price is half what they would cost. He is in it for the right reason, the joy of Appalachian Dulcimer music and the healing it brings to people.

Phil, keep up the good work. Who made your dulcimer you are playing in this video?

Thanks Ms. Ronda! Yes, solid Cherry except for hardware. I am in the fine tuning stage; less than a month ownership. I am getting close because many of y'all have said it has a great sound and I don't disagree. I have to figure out how to mount the camera from above to allow seeing the MD. I am putting a picture of it here for you--> ((Please keep in touch with your progress!)) 123_videos.jpg?width=750

Hey Phil, great that you shared stuff so early on in your new dulcimer 'relationship'. And if you don't care for Wayne's 'learning opportunities', you could always opt for 'regional variations' ? 113.gif
