The nicest I have seen is on this gal's website; http://raylynnwoods.com/playingstand.html . She offers a stand for your music or a stand that supports the dulcimer and music while you play. Don't have to hold dulcimer on your lap or use a strap. I am going to order one and will let you know how it works. She is located in Brown County Indiana, near little Nashville Indiana.

Check with Lauri Cole who is a member on this forum. She has a wonderful guitar stand that fits any Mountain Dulcimer which should include the Modern Mountain Dulcimer. It is made mostly of wood and folds in or out depending on the size of the dulcimer that is being held. The price is pretty reasonable.

Cheryl,

The stand made by Doug Felts is my favorite and it fits my MMD,Rockwell, Simerman and other instruments. Adjusts easily and the stand can fit into a suitcase if you unscrew the pieces which keep a dulcimer from slipping sideways. Thistle Dew Acres is their farm in Ohio and Lee is called The Ohio Bag Lady. Their products are high quality and good value. My sister in law has one of Lee's first bags and it is still protecting her dulcimer. Her cats love it too....

I have a Doug Felts dulcimer stand and it fits my MMD very well. Actually adjusts separately at top and bottom to fit every instruments I've ever tried.

Gary Sager at Prussia Valley builds a beautiful wooden stand-- adjustable and folds for travel. I love mine.Also, John Stockard makes a very sturdy adjustable metal stand. I've used mine for years and still works great :)Hope this helps,Mary Z Cox

I'm sure if you called or emailed him, he could tell you if your MMD would fit....

The stand is adjustable for width and depth-I think it would work for just about any guitar.

Thanks Phil! Is that an electric guitar stand then?? My acoustic stands are wide so the dulcimer would slip through the arms. I'll have to do a bit more searching.......

Thanks again for the photos, I' have a much better idea of what I'm after now!!

Hey CJ, I use a guitar stand-the kind that doesn't have an upper part.It adjusts to fit any dulcimer or guitar. Our friend Dave-O uses guitar stands with the upper part but he modifys them to fit his MMD's (which he has many of)Smile.gif

Hello,

Does anyone know who might build a stand that will fit a Modern Mountain Dulcimer?? I emailed David McKinney a couple times (maker of MMD) but he doesn't respond. I thought perhaps one of you who owns this instrument may have a stand that fits. My current stand holds every size except the MMD :(

Thanks!
