Thanks! I mainly use figured wood and wood with knots and blemishes on my dulcimers because I think it makes them interesting. I can't tell they hurt the sound at all.
I love the knots.Makers of Acoustic Guitars for example avoid uasing such beautifull wood, because it "doenst resonate that well".
I always thought, "well sound is one thing bit looks another one" ;-)
What would you say about this? Does it has an effect?
Ann Bowman that won this little beauty....what a fun person!!! When she saw my car and the little bed that I have built in and shelves for my dulcimers, said, "Oh, you are a tin can camper, eh?" I replied laughing so much..."YEP, sure am!!"
The wood species were: Mulberry, sassafras, buckeye, black walnut, cherry, birdseye maple, black locust, butternut and persimmon.
AKA "Dulcimer Salad"
Another winner! Beautiful looking (and I’m sure beautiful sounding) instrument! You really do make ‘em nice.
Thanks friend! You make them sound better than me!
Very nice Bobby. Is that Birdseye Maple on the fretboard?
Thanks friend! I ain't saying! Lol!
I like how you don't have the 6.5 (and 1.5) fret.
Thanks friend! I only add the 6.5 and 13.5 on request but really don't care for adding those. But some people are used to using them so I will for an extra $5 each. Lol!
That's a beaut. I love the knotholes and the grain on front and back.
