Hej Cynthia, tack för din snälla meddelande! Jag är faktiskt inte svensk - jag är italiensk, men bor i Sverige där jag pluggar Nordiska språk. Jag älskar Skandinavien. Lycka till med svenskan! Säg till om du behöver hjälp med språket.

Hälsningar från Uppsala!

Thanks for the warm welcome.   I like this site and the people just amaze me. I am trying to find a Dulcimer that I will like to start playing on. There doesn't seem to be any stores local though.  I may have to travel down to WV to sample some dulcimers.

Hi Cynthia:  Thank you for your warm welcome.  I love the area you are in, including the Vt. Bread store, nearby.. I will keep you in and your group mind if in the area.  This site is amazing.. I didn't know it existed until a friend mentioned it..  Enjoy and think spring, Janis

Thank you kindly, Cynthia! I am so tickled to find a place where beginners are welcome! I see that you are interested in Sacred Harp -- I am interested in that, too.

My antique shop find came with a 2-year-old receipt for recut nut and saddle grooves, a new screw for a string hold, and restringing -- from a local violin shop!

Whether because the previous owner was left handed or because the violin shop didn't know any better, it appears to be strung upside down. The wooden peg for the base string looks like it might have a tendency to slip a tiny bit if I'm not careful to seat it well, and I also suspect that the dulcimer's action may be considered high (I am clueless, but did the nickel/dime test).

Since I don't really know how to tune it yet, I can't tell anything about its intonation ... and in comparing its fretboard to contemporary ones, I don't think it has the 6+, etc. frets. But perhaps someone can tell me from the attached photo? :)

Thank you for the warm welcome! Certainly more that I got from the other dulcimer site I'm registered on.

Hi Cynthia,

Thanks for the warm welcome!  I don't have a dulcimer yet...did all the research and decided to ask Ron Gibson to make one for me.  Anticipation is not my strong suit.  ;-)

Glad to know that there is someone "close".  Where in Vermont do you live?  I'm in Schuylerville, NY.

Looking forward to some lovely music!

Best always,

Gwyn

Thanks for the welcome.  Looking forward to seeing the songs.  Whether I can play them or not depends on how hard they.  I don't have a lick of talent so usually play simpler things than many of the musicians play.

Thanks for welcoming me,  I haven't been on one of these before so I had to figure out where to respond. 

Like I said I have a dulcimer that I got along time ago in a sale. I don't play, but I love anything hand made.  I love the feel of smooth wood and like to imagine how long someone took to make it.  I paint and quilt.  always working on a project.  I was straitening up my sewing room and picked up this dulcimer that has been in the corner for years and looked again at the label inside.  I think a few years ago I looked on line about it but don't remember anything about it.

Today I got on line and I think this man is well known for his work.  I watched a video of him and he looked like quite a character!

Do I have something special and should I dust it,  ha ha?   Did he always stay with his simple roots?  I know he has already passed but I wonder if his family are reachable.    This comment might be too long.
