Thank you so much! I am so appreciative of the community & the warm welcome.
Thank you for the welcome. I'm just getting started, coming from a guitar playing background. I seem to be on a quest for simplicity since I have gone from 6- and 12-string guitar, to ukulele, to tenor guitar, to dulcimer! I recently bought an old 4-string equidistant cedar dulcimer shaped like a tulip or a lyre which I plan to post pictures of. I bought a used dulcimer from a well known luthier and finally returned it because the middle string always fretted sharp. I just found a McSpadden M12-W from 1991 locally for $250, and I am thoroughly pleased with it. A lady now in her late 70's bought it at their store in Arkansas with the chipboard case, and it ended up sitting in her closet for 27 years. I measured the strings with a micrometer, and they appear to be the original strings, since the owners manual says the factory strings were 12-12-12-23. It is absolutely pristine. I moved a couple of the end pegs to allow installing a strap attachment. Again thanks for the nice welcome!
Thank you! I am going to wander the halls a bit so I can get a feel for the place, but I think I'm going to like it here.
Thank you, Ben, for the warm welcome. What a great site this is!
Looking forward to it!
Thank you for the welcome! I'm enjoying my visit so far.
Thank you Ben for the welcome.
Thanks, Ben. I look forward to spending some time here.
Good morning Ben, thank you very much for your warm welcome - it is the first time for me to be a member in a site community and will have to find out step by step how everything works.
Here is picture of it.
Hey Friend, Here is a picture of my dulcimer. It has a full sound and I enjoy playing it.
Thanks Ben. You look like a fairley young dude. I was born in 49. Right, Dave is an Old Fart and looks to pickup some good tips. I play a 6 string dulcimer. It' a DAA tuned. Paul Sykes made it from a kit. Will have to post a pic of it.
Thank you so much for the welcome!
I am sure I can learn a lot here!
Thank you, Ben. I am a long way from you and think I am one of very few dulcimer owners in my country. I need to do a lot more work on my own and then I can start asking "silly questions" on here.
Thanks Ben! I'm still learning how to use the forum too.
Thank you I missed this sight I almost forgot how friendly people are
Thank you Ben for your warming welcome aboard!
