Copper Boiler Dulcimer
This was an ugly black and grungy copper kettle, until Ed set to work. He transformed it into this beautiful bass dulcimer. It's sweet deep tone is very pleasing to hear. It has three strings, the fret board is cedar, and the face of it is made from a mahogony door skin. The legs fold up for easy transport to a music festival. This was Ed's first attempt at making a musical instrument. You rock, my sweet ol' man!
