Thanks everyone for the welcome. Currently suffering from DAD or Dulcimer Acquisition Deficit as I have totally failed to make a purchase - yet. Fishing in a very small pond here in the UK and working to a not unreasonable spec and budget.

Meanwhile where might I find a stave or staff of the note range of dad tuning assuming most or all the additional frets are available? Thinking 11/2 61/2 81/2 13/1/2 because I like major/minor 7 chords. Plenty of tab available so I suppose I could write my own but there must be music notation available somewhere?

Hi Strummer, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.

Welcome Idle Strummer to Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. Glad you joined. I am hoping you will be able to play the dulcimer since you are limited in playing guitar and mandolin. This is a wonderful community of folks who love the mountain dulcimer. Join in the conversations and be sure to ask questions as you have them.
