Hi Austin, 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.

Welcome to FOTMD Austinmckenzie. There is an excellent dulcimer maker, teacher, and performer in Studio City. If that is near you, you should contact her. This is her website:

She introduced the dulcimer to Joni Mitchell. If you do contact her, tell her I sent you. Best wishes as you begin your dulcimer journey.
