Strings


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Thanks for the responses and insight into this. I will tune the strings according to the meter and then just tweak it to my ear.

General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

Hi Folks. I have a question concerning my dulcimer strings fluctuating in pitch while tuning with an app on my mobile device. Is it common for them to "go flat" while sustaining after plucking? The pitch actually moves lower then sometimes back to nearly what it should read on the meter. Is the sustain suppose to remain constant to the end? Thanks for your input.

How do I create a new forum discussion?


Site QUESTIONS ? How do I...?

Strumelia, I am having trouble finding the spot to post a new forum. On this particular page I am currently on I see screenshots. I am using a mobile device so that might be the reason, but I have never seen anything that looks like the screenshots. I am logged in. Could you please tell me where and how I could post a question on a forum? Thank you.

There is one other more recent one titled "Keepsake". Yes, their harmony is perfect.

Humidity and a sticky fretboard


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

I've noticed in the recent humid days we have had here where I live that my fingers don't seem to want to glide across the fretboard as easily. The fingerboard appears to be a little tacky or sticky therefore my fingers kind of drag on it. Any tips on solving this problem?

McSpadden flathead design


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


 I'm looking at a used McSpadden FM12S, 1999.

Can you tell me when they started putting the double circle design on the flathead? The label inside has Larry McSpadden's signature. Did he truly make this one?

What is the significance of the double circle?
