Subject: RE: BS: Dreaming Never-Made Instruments
I have SEEN a dulciola played!...Andy Cohen has/had one. He brought it to a house concert here, and my wife Ferrara, played it a bit,,,it is like a tiny little piano, but all the sound comes from striking the keys. The idea of a chorded autoharp is that you'd still pluck the strings with picks, but make piano like chords using some complex system inside the box...(it might be more trouble than my friend imagined!)
