I have been building fine custom musical instruments since 1978 in rural Bedford, Virginia. Working alone in a wood shop I designed and built, I have developed designs for ten different acoustic instruments. Although I specialize in hammered dulcimers, I also build bouzoukis, folk harps, Appalachian dulcimers, bowed psalteries, two octave zithers, slit drums, thumb pianos, mandolins and the occasional guitar. I am constantly working on research and development, sometimes alone, sometimes in collaboration with customers and professional musicians. I am always striving to build better quality instruments and am never content with the status quo. No assembly lines, just a lot of individual attention from start to finish. I can work with you to individualize your instrument or provide you with one I have created.
