Hey Bobby

As always, love the sound of your dulcimers.  You sound pretty dog gone good yourself.

This video turns my anticipation level up.  It's all good, and you know what I mean.

Thank you! The rain was a little louder than I thought, and I thought about not posting it.

Cool! All the models I make have hollow fretboards except two. This one is so tiny I think it's more sensitive to the solid fretboard though

For what it's worth, my two George Hendrickson dulcimers have hollow fret boards and project well, although they are big boys with 29" VSL.

Dusty Turtle:

Correct. That's what I assume the difference is.

I would imagine that a hollow fretboard would also allow the soundboard to vibrate more, correct?

Yes that's possible. I think the weight and stiffness of the fretboard makes a lot of difference on such a tiny dulcimer too

09/28/18 04:04:44PM @strumelia:

Interesting. Maybe having a hollow fretboard in some way increases the total volume of resonant chambers space without increasing the main body chamber size?

Thank you! I think they sound good for the size. I'm still tweaking them for sound. The Cumberland sounds even better and I think it's due to the fretboard being narrow and hollow. So the next little Lynzie Anne I build I'm going with a hollow fretboard.

Bobby, so many 'travel dulcimers' have a thin plinky tone. In contrast, yours sounds rich and sweet!  That'd be such an easy and satisfying dulcimer to take along when traveling.  yes
