Thanks for your interest in the book/cd set Fresh Airs - Irish Antiquities, Ron! I like to let players know that it is not a beginning book, if that is what they might be expecting. It is geared from early intermediate to advanced players, giving a good practice for adding those lovely Irish embellishments. I will send you a PayPal invoice, and am so happy that you are interested in the beautiful ancient tunes of Ireland and how they can be applied to dulcimer!

Hi, Ron. Welcome! The Blue Lion is a standard hourglass dulcimer, but in that video it is tuned to CGC...a whole step lower than the usual DAD tuning. Yes, it is amped.. it has a built in pickup that I got when I ordered it. Baritones are lovely, though most are a little harder to play because they take more finger strength on heavier strings. Also they are usually tuned lower (I have one that I tune to AEA) and it isn't as easy to jam with others who are tuned to D. BUT, the sound is lovely and very mellow! That may be more information than you wanted! Good luck in dulcimer hunting! Smile.gif Judith

Hi Ronald, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
