Indeed. Guy George lives near me, and was gracious enough to invite
me to visit him to try out the Grand and Baby Grand models. I didn't
care for the Grand, but the Baby Grand sounded wonderful. One
question I was curious about when I began my search for a new
dulcimer: is there one that sounds better enough than my current one
that I am would be willing to spend $2,000 on? I would be quite happy
to spend the money for a Baby Grand.
