I purchased Ledford dulcimer 1104 probably in 1967 or 1968, as I recall, from a shop either  on or near the Blue Ridge Parkway in the vicinity of Asheville, NC.  The back and sides appear to be walnut.  The top has diamond sound holes. The fingerboard has no notches or cut-out arches.  The number and “Made by” signature and location are hand-written on the inside back.

Farmer, Wes

 

 

 

My wife bought # 1216 about 1966-67 from Homer.  She says she paid $65.00 for it.  Over the years it had come unglued so our son Wes brought the dulcimer to Homer's home to be repaired.
In your listing of Dulcimers you have Wes Farmer as the owner of that dulcimer.  Could/Would you change it to Nancy Farmer, 400 East Lovers Lane, Lebanon,  KY  40033

6/25/2009 My name is Dave Heistand and in case you want to know, back in 1969 I bought a dulcimer in Nashville.  When I looked into one of the diamond sound holes, I saw penciled on the bottom “No. 1229” and “Homer Ledford”.  So when I finally went looking on the web for info about Mr. Ledford this last week (don’t ask why it took me so long – I don’t know), and found the website and then the list of instruments, I went looking into the sound hole again to refresh my memory.  There it was.  The only thing is, my number is not on your list.

1/30/2009 I acquired the hourglass dulcimer a few years ago and it hung on my wall until recently when my wife began playing again.  It had been roughly treated and needed some support and regluing, but now it's as good as ever.  Sides and back are walnut, top and fingerboard appear to be butternut with diamond-shaped holes.  I love the form and the wonderful thin wood that give it such a mellow sound.  Seems the groups my wife is playing with favor the DAd tuning and chord the instrument with their fingers instead of playing with a stick (whatever you call it).  So I had to add frets across the board instead of the two-string frets that were on Homer's original.  The number is 1463, which according to your WEBsite was made in 1968.  It's signed "Homer C. Ledford,
Winchester Ky."
