My hammered dulcimer is finally complete! Well… almost. There’s a few more things that need to be done, including replacing the bass bridge, finishing the very rough hammers, and learning how to play it.
This dulcimer has taken on a life of its own. Just like a child takes 9 months to grow in the womb, and then has a lifetime of learning ahead of him/her, this dulcimer took 9 months to build. Anyone who’s heard me hack away on it will agree that I’ve got a lifetime of learning ahead of me. 🙂
