Dulcimer #46 is complete!

After a coat of paste wax and installing the tuning machines, I attached the acoustic bass strings and carefully located the bridge in the optimum place.

On the evening of Friday, December 2nd, I joined the Naturecoast Dulcimer Players on the front porch of an historic house in nearby Floral City and played 2 hours of Christmas music for the passers-by. I had several arrangements of the music for the bass dulcimer, so I was able to put her through her paces. Richness and depth of the tone of this instrument is very impressive, if I say so myself.
