Custom dulcimer arrived…beauty!

Some of you may know of my, er, interest in musical instruments (and the fact that I am apparently tone deaf as well. I know, very little with me makes sense.) Anyhoo, I had commissioned a teardrop Appalachian mountain dulcimer before Christmas, and it has arrived. It is gorgeous, and the sound is incredible. This was Mary’s (Laurel Mountain) first teardrop with a Galax (double) bottom, and it exceeds expectations… pictures and maybe a video and sound file to come… Its this one (also featured on her website). This picture doesn’t do it justice. There are more pictures here (scroll down).
