QGolden replied to Slow Blues Dani & Ol' Grey Bear's discussion Mountain dulcimer phaser type sound? in the group DULCIWORLD: Dulcimers & Strummers
"I'll be honest with you, I do not hear any unpleasant sounds. Traditional built mountain dulcimers have a unique harmonic ring to them. They are diatonic instruments and rely heavily on sympathetic notes often created by strings vibrating that…"

QGolden replied to Slow Blues Dani & Ol' Grey Bear's discussion Mountain dulcimer phaser type sound? in the group DULCIWORLD: Dulcimers & Strummers
"OK,  good information and follow up. I am familiar with that type.  I presume the body is wood?  I ask because there is a company in CT that has been marketing a cardboard model with a wood fretboard.  It actually sounds quite…"

QGolden replied to Slow Blues Dani & Ol' Grey Bear's discussion Mountain dulcimer phaser type sound? in the group DULCIWORLD: Dulcimers & Strummers
"There are numerous items used as "Traditional" noters. Reeds, hardwoods, fingers, etc. use what is comfortable and offers the best sound. I presume you built this Dulcimer? If so, is what you are hearing "String buzz"? Caused by…"

"Hello I am not sure what you mean by "stick thru neck" design.  Also not sure which video you are referencing. Understanding what you have for tools and skills would help to get you suggestions., but this page might help…"

QGolden replied to PhilUSAFRet's discussion Wood for Neck Bowed in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"See if you can find someone with a Jointer, that is the tool made to do the job. Milling the wood to make it flat will go a long ways to it staying flat. Internal stress caused it to bow, the memory is in there. Planing it flat would be best."

"Can you dumb this down a bit more for me?   How can all positions from the 1st fret to the 8th fret be the same note?  I guess I cannot picture the error..."

QGolden replied to Habanera Hal's discussion "Evolving" dulcimer fret patterns? in the group Dulcimers and Strummers
"Those look very nice. What is the VSL? I have often contemplated buying (or building) one. I really like the "A Sticks" by Wendell Powell, although I am not sure if he still walks among us. I have not seen a post from him since about 2009…"

QGolden replied to Paul Craig's discussion Cedar Box Build in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"A piece of hardwood dowel and an o-ring makes a decent looking capo. Cut the dowel an inch longer than the width of the neck. Cut a small notch on the dowel with your pocket knife, about a 1/4 inch from each end on the same side of the dowel. Using…"
