Dulcimer with Purple Heart
The music man is at it again. My husband, Ed, built this beautiful dulcimer. We fondly call them, the music boxes. This one is made with poplar, and that lovely fret board and the sides are made with purple heart. The two woods really compliment each other. It measures 25" x 8" x 3 1/8". It's tuned to DAD, and has the most sweet tone.
This is a close up of the side, the color is quite unusual, and adds a unique look to this dulcimer. He also strung it with 4 strings, and used copper on the top and the bottom.
Well done, my sweet ol' man! Keep it simple today, people! Audrey : )
