Very helpful comments John when I get to that point. I have a walnut kit to finish, and another thing to tend to before I can get either, but I guess it's the Prichard eventually.

Thanks for the comment Cynthia ! Just a thought that might help in decision making ? The Mahwee might be seen as harder to play (strings at high tension!) plus it tends to move about a bit ? It could also be seen to offer limitation in range of playing options ? It is the dulcimer I pick up least ! On the other hand it has a big voice ! I stress these are my opinions, others may have completely different views, and that I respect !


(and I suspect that you can get a 'mean toned' Pritchard replica from Kevin these days !)

That's a mighty pretty singer, indeed. Hard to decide between this and a Prichard. I like the size and voice of these though, very much. Most cheerful.

Thank you, JH, but that Mawhee isn't mine. I just gave the 1st one Kevin made a test drive to hopefully sell a few. I figured folks would listen and say, "the instrument sounds good, but I can play better than that."
