Who am I?




These miniature dulcimers can be played. But the silver strings break easily if they are tuned too tightly so I don't play them. I made the fronts, backs & sides from sheets of veneer, the heads, fretboards & tails from wood. An X-Acto knife and hand saw were used for cutting and carving. The hour-glass dulcimer is fashioned after the pattern I used for making my full-sized dulcimer. The silver strings are actually fine silver unwound from a bass guitar string. The pegs can be turned and chalk keeps them from slipping.
