Hi, Kevin,
I just wanted to send a testimonial to you, in case you would need it for business purposes.
I purchased your bass dulcimer from Hill Country Guitars, and have been so impressed with it! I’m a bassist, so I love deep bass sounds, and this dulcimer delivers! It is very obviously made with great skill and care. The wood is beautiful (and smells good), the instrument is solid, and it feels comfortable to play. I love it, and I thank you for it!

Hi Kevin,                                                                                                                                             Just wanted to let you know what a great time I’ve been having with that featherweight nylon string Walkabout. It’s a delightful little thing with a sweet voice and is a joy to play. I’ve played it everyday since I bought it, and I’m grateful for the joy it has brought me.  Many thanks.

The dulcimer arrived this afternoon.  Fabulous!!!  Great looking and excellent craftsmanship.  I was going to ask you if it would take a strap button, but you already put one on…the dulcimer is so well balanced I probably won’t need one though.  The instruction book is really well written…clear, concise and full of ideas.  The chord tabs will help a lot with wrapping my mind around switching from mountain dulcimer. I tuned the dulcimer up almost as soon as I got it out of the wrapping and case….and finally managed to put it down just a few minutes ago…can’t stay away from it.

It’s GREAT. Thanks for a wonderful new opportunity for enjoyment.  I’m reminded of a line from a famous German poet…”Noch ein Erlebnis, voll von Milch und Honig!” (a new experience, full of milk and honey).  Guess I’ll have to name her Honey (G).

Thanks again…my dulcimer buddies will be so jealous.

You know I bought a six string bass dulcimer from you a few years ago, and I have to say it is one of the finest string instruments I’ve ever had the honor to play — and I’ve played a LOT of high-end guitars, basses, ukuleles, mandolins, etc. over the last 35 years.  THANK YOU! I want to buy another from you…. Perhaps something to compliment the Bass Dulcimer, though I want six strings and also the added frets to provide different modes while playing.  What’s in your pipeline that might interest me?  Let me know.  I would love to support your work and I consider you a true craftsman.
