I hope you enjoy this site, lots of nice folks who take the time helping out where they can. Your new dulcimer looks very interesting, art all on it's own.
Thanks for the useful information about you and your instruments. I would be very interested to see your 6 string Jerry Rockwell - as you will know, he is an excellent luthier and I would love to see his version of a 6 string. I have 5 or 6 other 6 strings, all of which are strung differently!
If you are looking for a concert style instrument, I do not know of a maker in Holland although Michael Fluegge and Wilfried Ulrich in Germany both produce fine instruments. If you want to look further afield and are prepared to consider used instruments, then try my website at www.revelsmusic.co.uk . I have sent dulcimers to Italy and Denmark. Happy to talk through what might suit you.
All the best.
Howdy and welcome to FOTMD!

Welcome to FOTMD and to the UK/Europe group. You will find a number of great dulcimer players in the Netherlands, if you do not know them already.
Tell us if there is anything you need to know: music tab to play on the dulcimer, workshops and dulcimer days, buying a dulcimer or its accessories etc etc. Someone here will know!
Good luck! Geoff
Welkom op dit forum. Ik 'had' familie in de Wieger vanBrugstrjirte,dus ik kom helaas niet vaak meer in de buurt.Zelf woon ik in Den Haag.
Hi Jan, 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. At the top of the page is a heading for Groups; it is a drop-down menu which has a UK/European Group listing that you can join.
Hey Jan, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Welcome to FOTMD Jan. It's good to have you aboard. I look forward to your participation in these discussions.
