Tom Yocky ???

Postby NoGear » Tue Feb 14, 2017 9:21 pm

Anyone know what became of Tom Yocky - dulcimer maker from Texas? I had him build a custom dulcimer for me (I have big hands) he did a wonderful job! Ready for a new one - but no hits on Google or any of the other dulcimer sites? :?:

Any Assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks, Mark

As far as I know, Tom has left the business.

Thanks Ken,

I looked at the date on the Dulcimer - Dragon and it was 2004!

Time flies when you're having fun!

Other builders would probably be willing and/or thrilled to craft an instrument for you, to your specifications. e.g. wide fretboard.

I do not know if he's for hire or not, but if I were seeking a great instrument and wanted something custom, I'd check into this guy right here: http://www.everythingdulcimer.com/discuss/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=4808

Many others are available, but I think I'd at least see what that guy had going on. Look in the "Dulcimer Maker" forum and you'll find some photos of his work and how it goes together. I think he's in Maryland, but shipping is cheap enough these days.

Best wishes,
- Tony
