I have a dulcimer that my dad built probably 35-40 years ago from a kit. I don't know where the kit came from and I am not sure we could ever really figure out just when he built it. My mom is looking to see if there are any pictures. My dad passed away in 1991. Needless to say it is certainly a treasure to me. It's the dulcimer I used to record "Amazing Grace" as a tribute to my dad.
