Hi Alan, The issue is that it wasn't actually a for sale ad. The thread was removed while meanwhile she is asking more questions in a new thread about using ebay etc. You'd need to take the issue up with D. privately if you want to know more.
Hey Alan. Thanks for your question on the Probst dulcimer. Yes, it is very balanced. It is also very loud. Certainly the loudest dulcimer I have heard and much louder, in fact, than my Modern Mountain Dulcimer with a false back. It also has much more sustain than average dulcimers. The action is not as low as my MMD but is closer to my Blue Lion. There are a few tunes I do that I only do on the Probst because I need that volume and sustain. But I find it takes a few days to get used to the touch of the Probst whenever I start playing it. Because of the volume and sustain, it takes a softer right hand approach than other dulcimers and if I haven't played it in a while it takes a day or so before I am really in control of the dynamics. The sound is closer to that of a guitar than a dulcimer.
Howdy and welcome to FOTMD!

Hi Alan, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.
