Picks on hammered dulcimers


Adventures with 'other' instruments...

I keep a pick holder on mine to do the tuning. I pluck each string with a pick. It could have been used for her mountain dulcimer as well since many people play both. Linda

Info about John ans Shirley Naylor Mountain Dulcimer


Instruments- discuss specific features, luthiers, instrument problems & questions

No, it did not break. I've just never seen anything like the material before. I know someone else who has a dulcimer from the same year with the same nut and bridge. They are different-- her's is a 4-string, and mine is a 6-string. Thanks for the input. Linda

Does anyone know the material of the nut and bridge of a 1994 The Dulcimer Factory mountain dulcimer? They are black on the outside and white on the inside. Thanks so much. Linda

General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Thanks so much for the new group. I immediately joined, and I love having the discussions all in one place. They make much more sense when all together. I don't login much--just too shy. However, I'm with you at least twice a day to learn and enjoy. Thanks for being the owner. Linda

Anything anyone can tell me about a 1979 vintage mountain dulcimer from "the Dulcimer Shop"


Instruments- discuss specific features, luthiers, instrument problems & questions

Thanks all for your help. I've decided to put purchase on hold for a time. The price is currently not far off, but the problem with it being a kit makes me wonder if it is indeed playable. I may follow up later. Thanks again. Linda

Just called and found out it does have McSpadden name in it. It is a kit with name and date of person who put it together. No other info. It has friction machines. Very little playing. Frets look OK. Only two strings. Came from a relative of the builder. Any ideas? I live too far away to go to it. Any idea on value? Price is firm right now. Thanks again for your help. Linda

I will call and see what additional info about it. They spelled SHOP as SHOPPE. It doesn't look like any McSpadden I've seen; so I changed the spelling to SHOP. I really like vintage, but I want to play it--not just look at it. I'll get back with additional info I hope. It looks great in the pic. Linda
