I am retiring from being a full time luthier. I have been building hammer dulcimers, hammers, dulcimer stands, psalteries, and bones for over 45 years. Building and performing has given me a wonderful, rich life all across the United States. I have you to thank for supporting me and giving me a dream of being self-employed. Thank You. Now I feel a strong calling to do more performing, traveling, and exploring nature.
My shop is at my daughter and husband’s home where I have two young, adorable grandkids, and that I will never be away from for more than a few months. I will differently be continuing to fill orders as best I can. Going forward you will need to place your orders via email. When I finally check my email, I will reply with an estimate of a shipping date for your order, and then place your name on a waiting list. When your order is close to being ready to ship, I will ask for payment. You can then call with a credit card number, send a check, or I can send a PayPal invoice. Please contact me if you have any questions.
