I've been playing dulcimer since 1979. I built a kit complete with friction peg tuners. I played the heck out of that dulcimer for 7 years and performed on the Arena Stage at the 1986 Folklife Festival and the World's Fair in Vancouver, BC. I donated it to a friend's kid and decided to buy a Blue Lion and have been playing it ever since.

Hi Elven-  the email address you are using for your FOTMD account is not jiving for our site notification system- all your site notifications are not being sent out to you because of it (like for when someone 'likes' your items, mentions you in a post, comments on your page, sends you a private message, etc).  To fix this situation you must use a different domain email address (gmail, outlook, yahoo would work fine, for example).  You can change this in your Account Settings.  I sent you two notes about this but I don't know if you've received them at your email address.   Thanks!
