McSpadden v. Folkcraft?
Instruments- discuss specific features, luthiers, instrument problems & questions
My idea is if the dulcimer is curvy (hourglass), it's a LADY. If the dulcimer has a fat middle (Galax or teardrop), it's a GENT. Nature itself should teach us that... Now if the dulcimer is straight-sided, or asymmetrical, well...um...OK, it's just a theory.
