Welcome Billybobboy42 to Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. So glad you joined. This is a great community of people who love the dulcimer. Sounds like you have done a good bit of research already. There are folks here who are always willing to share from the depth of experience and wealthy of knowledge about the dulcimer.  Best wishes on your dulcimer journey. I'll send you a private note.
