2006 Timbre Hill (Paul Conrad) 3 String Hourglass
Dulcimer #79 dated May 22nd 2006. Nicely constructed, it has a bookmatched elm back and elm sides/top. Soundholes are pairs of different size diamond shapes. Large trademark headstock with “scroll”, allowing easy string replacement. Unusual high saddle set on small walnut lozenge. Banjo style geared tuners. 27⅛” VSL. 6½ and 12½ frets.
Very light construction makes for good volume and full, transparent sound across the range. This is an attractive and nice-sounding instrument with very good intonation, suitable for players of all abilities.
