the Hammered Dulicmer

the Hammmered dulicmer has been called many thing in different parts of the world.The dulicmer can trace it’s roots to the country called Pursia sometime before Christ.I donot know the exactly when but I do know this fact.The dulicmer that is pictured is my dulicmer.I had discovered this musical instrament while chaseing the Ohio and Erie canal in the Roscoe Villiage area of Coshoton county here in Ohio.This was in 1991 at the time there was the regional dulicmer contest going on at the same time as a festival for the instrument.
I bought mine in 1992.In 1993 I entered the novice class competion and I was able to win third place.I was pleasantly surprized at winning this.The songs that I played were self taugh useing a video tape to watch the playing and then trying to copy what I was watching and learning.

  1. How cool is this! I\’ve seen (and heard) these being played at Renaissance Faires here in So Cal and thought they\’d be fun to play. Alas I settle for the autoharp (a teacher\’s instrument), my guitar and occasionally even play my mom\’s piano (inherited after she passed on) that needs to be tuned. Thanks for visiting my blogs. \’Tis nice to meet you and hope 2008 is a better year for you and yours.Hugs and blessings,
