It's Me again, Matthew! Today is Sunday February 5th, 2023, and I finally figured out how to place Ad's on the website. If you put your mind to it guys, I'm telling you, you can do it. this has been a very exciting adventure for me for sure. There are of coarse other things that I will need to get worked out, but that will happen in due time. I am currently working on creating solid Bodys to be attached to our dulcimer fretboards. Thank God that I have people who are great at making those fretboards for me. My Goal is to start off with what is called a Piezo Pick-Up. A Piezo Pick-Up is a device that has a suction cup attached to a microphone wire. You plug one end which has a quarter-inch Jack into your amp (or other fancy device that can also be plugged into your phone,) and the other end has that suction cup. You can position that suction cup anywhere you like on the Instrument, and it will create amazing tones. The next goal will be to learn how to create the electric versions with the single coil or double humbucker Pick-Ups.
The reason I want to do this is because I believe there are people out there who love the dulcimer as much as I do and would also love to hear what it sounds like plugged into an Amp with incredible sound effects.
Tell me what you think of my endeavors thus far in the comments or feel free to email me with questions.
Remember that if you put your mind to do something, it is absolutely possible to accomplish it. I have to constantly remind people at work to make sure they didn't hear themselves say that negative comment about themselves because, we as human beings are prone to believing everything, we say that comes out of our mouths.
Have a Blessed day!!!!
