I now have a FolkRoots dulcimer from all three builders. Howard Rugg, David Marks, and now Richard Ash. Two standards, and a baritone. Saving up for number four, now. Need a bass!
I love my FolkRoots dulcimers. I have an old one made in California by Howard Right, and a new one made in Indiana by Jim Ash. Huge sound on both of them!
