We recently moved to a new area. This past Saturday stopped in to an antique store and was smitten by this diddly bow. The huge single-tuner is very cool... wish I had a better shot to show it to you guys. The tag indicated is was from the 1930's.
And check out the old home-made fiddle. No background info on it.
This mountain dulcimer also on display is said to be locally made.
And here's a pie-plate banjo.
I felt a real connection with the people who built these.
