"I purchased a vintage McSpadden dulcimer on eBay for only $250. Needs a quick tune-up, but it plays absolutely beautifully."

HI Sean, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.

Welcome to FOTMD Fightonsean. I'm glad you found the mountain dulcimer in West Virginia. It's a delightful instrument. Let us know if you have any questions. There are some dulcimer groups in WV. There might be one near you depending upon where you are. There is a group here called West Virginia Players. Feel free to join and maybe some of the members will contact you. It is good to have you aboard.
