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!

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, 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.nod
