I'm like Judy and Jon and others - a collector of unusual, antique and other instruments. Judy, where are those 2 stores located where you said you've purchased many? I consider it a rare find to acquire something different. My current collection includes: hammered dulcimer (favorite - I've played about 5 yrs.) mountain dulcimer autoharp guitar a vintage tenor (4 string) guitar mandolin ukelele, and a baritone uke balalaika omnichord accordion concertina harmonica fife, recorders, tin whistles Hawaiian tremeloa ( my weirdest instrument) bowed psaltry - which I love to play midi keyboard
I think that's all. I keep my eyes peeled at antique shops, flea markets, estate sales.
I envy Judy. I'd love to find a chinese yang chin and also the persian hammered dulcimer - what's it called.?
