Sweet Notes From Roane County
For over 38 years, Jim Good has been playing and making dulcimers in the hills north of Charleston, West Virginia, an area noted for its folk musicians and musical heritage.
Working as a carpet layer in 1972, Jim was on his way home from work when an elderly man playing a dulcimer on his front porch caught his attention. After stopping and listening to the beautiful music, Jim was hooked, and began a creative journey that continues to this day.
Mastertone Dulcimers are made of native hardwoods such as walnut, butternut, cedar, maple, red elm, cherry, chestnut, sassafras,and paulowia, as well as various exotic woods such as padauk. Only top grade, kiln-dried wood is used, to minimize the effects of humidity and temperature on each instrument.
Stop by and try a Jim B Good dulcimer, and make some 'sweet music' for yourself!
