"Every class I went to at a festival in Vermont last weekend, someone would ask me if they could have a closer look at my dulcimer. I haven't had so much attention since my strapless gown spun around at a dance. Thanks for making me the Belle of the Ball." Jane Mazzotta, Moodus, Connecticuit

"I own 63 dulcimers now, and my two Bonnie Carol dulcimers are the ones I play the most." Bill Lee, San Antonio, Texas

Its incredible voice has accompanied me at a wedding, a memorial service, and some community celebrations . . . but mostly it just sings to me. Thanks so much for building such a wonderful instrument." Robert Bellows, Boulder, Colorado

"I know I will never tire of hearing and playing my "Bonnie". Mary Sadler, Mesquite, Texas
