Wanted: Dulcimers or Banjos by: Hicks, Glenn, Proffitt, etc

Postby Slingerland » Fri Feb 11, 2011 10:02 pm

Hello,

I am looking for dulcimers or banjos made by any of the Watauga Co. makers including: Stanley Hicks, Leonard Glenn, Clifford Glenn, Charlie Glenn, Frank Proffitt, Edd Presnell, or other makers. I am also interested in other mountain banjos or dulcimers made by other noted makers.

I can be reached at 419-602-2724

Thanks very much!

Hi,
I have a beautiful hand-crafted dulcimer by Clifford Glenn, dated Sept 20, 1978, which I purchased in 1979 and have never used. I can send pics if you like.

I have a dulcimer "kit" made by Stanley Hicks. Stanley gave it to me back in the mid 1970's and I have never put it together. Basically, it includes the fretboard with grooves marked (but not cut), a strip of fret wire, the top and back, the neck, and the sides. Unique to Stanley's style of construction is that he cut the sides in a curved shape rather than bend them, as most makers do. The top is marked for location of the fretboard, and heart-shaped patterns of very small holes have been drilled into the top to be carved by whomever puts it together. All markings and drilled holes were put there by Stanley. He did not include tuning pegs, as he used standard violin pegs that can be obtained from any music store or catalog. STH (for Stanley Tom Hicks) is carved into the back of the head where the tuning pegs go. The entire kit is made of walnut. If interested, contact me at esbaker47@gmail.com.

I have 3 dulcimers made by 3 noted builders.

1. A 6 string made for me by Robert Force & Albert D'Ossche.
Mostly Walnut.

2. One made for me by Bonnie Carol in 1983. Zebra Wood and Ebony.

3. The coolest one of all...a sweet little thing made by Jerry Nolte way back in 1977 when he lived in Bear, Idaho (very close to my location)
