I will try to help with your problem there.  Thanks!

Hi Phil, thanks for the response:) The Hambas is a beautiful instrument and sounds great in the videos you directed me to. I'm curious as to what other builders' dulcimers you own. They must be pretty special to have been the "keepers" when you were thinning out! Unless it was just the fact that it was a baritone not being played much that caused you to give the Hambas up.

Yes, my dulcimer is a David Lynch. I really do love it, great sound and volume (I have a built in pickup) and it is the only dulcimer I have. I first bought a Folkcraft off Craigslist, but sold that one when I had the Lynch built. I'm in the mode/mood where I just want another, but want it to be something different than what I already have. Like maybe a chromatic.... do you play a fully chromatic?

Phil your version of Rubens train was beautiful! That is how I wanted mine to turn out, think I need to practice a little more. LOL Just wanted to let you know how much I liked it. You might want to post it under videos so it doesn't get lost in the feed thread. It's to great not for everyone to enjoy it. Thanks for posting
