Jim, thanks so much for letting me know about my father's dulcimer.  I put in an early very low bid. Am watching it now!  Hope I get it so all my siblings can have one that he made.

 

Best,

Cindy

Hi Jim, 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.
