 I am new to the site, Not sure were this will end up . But here is my question. A member of my embroyic duclimer group recently purchased a second hand dulcimer.  It looks and sounds great  but when she was tuning it  one of the anchor pegs pulled out ( I have posted a picture).  One problem is that it was holding two strings and she is happy to revert to a three stringed instrument.  It looks like a relatively easy fix to me but I don't want to make it worse and I;m not a luthier and there do not seem to be many people on cape cod who even know what a dulcimer is, let alone how to safely replace the anchor.

I am attaching a picture and wellcome any advice or council.

Hi Mj, 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 to FOTMD, MJ. It's always nice to have folks to share our music with and you have your church, choir, and are working on getting some folks together to play dulcimer. I wish you the best in your endeavors. It's good to have you aboard. Let us know if we can offer support in any way.

Ken
