Glad to hear. No DA for you. (Dulcimaniacs anonymous)

Be careful Jerry. DAD (dulcimer acquisition disorder) is a highly contagious disease. You just getting started and you already have two. After 50 years on this journey I've finally whittled my collection down to nineteen, but I'm in the early stages of making a few more. It never ends.
I look forward to reading more about your progress and am happy to try and answer any questions you may have.
Enjoy the journey.
Thanks all for the warm welcome. Just getting started with my winter project but Alaska has long winters :) . Came upon a McSpadden teardrop (2000) locally for a great price so snatched it up. I'd been looking for instruments. Then, as luck would have it, also came upon an older but in great shape Cedar Creak hourglass to play with. Reading books and looking at Youtube videos to get started. When I know more I'll probably have lots of questions.
Hey Jery, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
