I have a Ewing, played little, always cased. I might be interested in selling. Friend me and we can pm.
Wanted: dulcimer by Ron Gibson or Ron Ewing
BTW, i bought the gibson that was posted for sale that dave referenced.
gibson, ewing, and lynch are all great choices at very good prices.
I have a SweetWoods (lynch) on order. He is exceptionally easy to work with, knowledgeable, and will work hard to get you the sound and playability you are looking for.
He is 10-12 weeks out on his orders right now.
his student dulcimers are pretty awesome for $100ish if you are looking for truly entry level. I loved mine, and it is what got me hooked on these three sweet strings.
Good grief, i just realized you are another Billy/Bill from the general area of Maryville...that makes three! What are the odds? My guess is you know Billy A based on what you are searching for.
Good luck in your search.
Are you looking for New, or used? What characteristics?
