Thank you for the warm welcome Richard.  Really looking forward to participating in this community.  What I have read on the Dulcimer is that it is an easy instrument to learn.  But I haven't found anything easy about it yet!! lol This may just be what I need to get me going. Looking forward to the journey.

The Warren May dulcimers are very beautiful, he sells on Facebook too but they were a little out of my league - not overpriced but taxes and postage to UK can be quite high

Walnut Valley had a kiosk at Epcot Center, Walt Disney World . That is where I saw them first, picked up the brochure in October 1991 saved it and ordered my first dulcimer from them receiving it in early 1993. I have purchased several used dulcimores which were hardly played at all. I got one McSpadden used which still had the pick and noter stick in a little envelope which was still sealed up. I have a Warren May dulcimer a man purchased going through Berea Kentucky, stopped at the shop and purchased it and never played it. He gave it to his sister who sold it to me. Some sweet deal out there sometimes.

Have a great day.
