Thanks, Charles...it was the sound of you playing yours (and showing the website) that decided me to get one! Can't wait to get it!

I just purchased a Berg 5-string elliptical (all sycamore) last Sunday...I'm eagerly awaiting delivery! I'm glad you like yours!

Congrats, Dave. My first dulcimer was Bill Berg student model. I still play it often and it seems to get better with age. Heck, maybe both o us do. You made a great find and buy.

I just bought a 5 string Berg hourglass on eBay for $78.00. This is one made by him and his wife. I have played many builders, including Mcspadden, and lots of others. This is by far the best sounding dulcimer I have played. All solid wood, book-matched back, all walnut with butternut, or cypress top. It is the first 5 string I have touched, and may never go back to a 3 string. Tuned dadD. I love it. Who ever said you need to spend hundreds for a great dulcimer?
