from the Dusty Strings web site

When Ray and Sue Mooers started Dusty Strings in 1979, Ray built hammered dulcimers in the couple’s basement, and the two played and sold them at festivals and craft fairs. After they switched to selling through acoustic music retailers, the business began to grow, adding employees until the basement no longer sufficed.

Dusty Strings moved to its present location in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood in 1982, and Ray began experimenting with building folk harps the following year. An accomplished hammered dulcimer player, he had never played harp, but was fascinated with the instrument and had long been collecting information on harp design and construction.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
