"Likey!  I really like the sound of these, but not the look.  Have been wondering how to fix that part and your discovery of removing the Lace top and being able to put something more interesting on it is good news!  Thnx."

Some great looking stuff there Andries, might have a go building one :)

Yes he did, although at the time I had no idea what it was or even cared, I was so much interested in guitars (still am lol) but general opinion is the Dulcimer developed from Zither type instruments such as the Scheitholt.The influence of Irish/Scottish immigration made old time music popular on it especially fiddle tunes. 

At 12:53pm on June 15, 2018, Dennis Goodinson said…

It's none of those, I did a lot of research on Tennessee Music Box Dulcimers & based the builds on what I found. I built both from 12mm plywood for the boxes & poplar for the necks/fretboard. I did however use D'Addario Dulcimer Strings not bailing wire :) -  A lot of info came from these 3 links-

Hi Andries, the scale on the late 1800's re-creation TNB is just over 2'2" (670mm to be exact), the modern style box dulcimer is 2' exactly (610mm)

Thanks Andries!! It's custom made :) 

At 8:06am on June 14, 2018, Korrigan said…

I'm going to build a 4-string resonator as a keeper for myself and I was considering putting a Lace Matchbook on it because they sound great. The problem is that they are too damn ugly. lol So I've been waiting to buy one until they come out with different covers or somebody finds a good way to replace the cover. But I was joking when I said send me yours. : )

Great stuff!  I'm looking forward to that sound test!

At 6:29pm on June 12, 2018, Korrigan said…

No Andries, I meant send me the Lace pickup!

Just joking.  : )
