Thanks, Richard for your encouragement. There is a dulcimer club not far from me but they meet at a time when I can't attend. But I'm getting so much help and encouragement here!

Richard,  I saw an old comment where you were interesteed in a Presnell.  I have one that I am planning to sell, as I clear out my inventory in preparation for my eventual promotion.

It is a Cherry 6-string dulcimer that I bought for my collection 2 or 3  years ago.  I bought it with a partner, then later I bought him out.

I have not played it, as I am really not a player.

If you are interested, let me know, and I'll send info and photos.

Thanks,

Bill Howard

On starting a discussion, are you sending me the welcome via my profile ? I did start a new topic thread about a Warren May dulcimer. This site is kind of confusing/different than the guitar forum I frequent.
