An instrument with a story - Restoration/Repair

Posted on


Its always interesting to have a challange!


This Appalachian Dulcimer was being made by a young man who sadly died before finishing it. His parents, 20 years later brought it to me to finish it off. That involved preceding in a different way to normal because things had been done in the wrong order and some very thin materials had been used. Anyway I had to solve a few other problems that the maker hadn't considered. But the finished instrument looks really interesting despite having a few things I wasn't able to 'disappear'. The clients are delighted.
