I have four Backyard Instruments. Three chromatic DAd tuned; one with regular strings; the other with nylon strings. The third chromatic is tuned DAAA.The fourth is tuned DAd with 1.5: 6.5: 8.5 and 13.5 frets. My favorite of these is whichever one is in my lap.
I also have a Folkcraft chromatic cardboard dulcimer my son built for me.
I have heard of cardboard Backyard Instruments lasting 30 years.

Is there a doctor in the house?
I’ve spent several years trying to get the nerve to ask this.
