Hi Pa, 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 Pa1911a1 to Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. Glad you joined. Its good to hear of your interest in the history and the historical development of the mountain dulcimer. That is a fascinating study. If there is any way we can support you during your dulcimer journey let us know.

If I lived that close to the Mercer Museum I would spend a lot of time there. As it is I've been there 3 or 4 times. I made a rough reproduction of one of Pennsylvania German zitters there. Well, actually it is a copy I made of a reproduction a friend of mine made. I used some scrap walnut I had around my shop but didn't have enough to make it as deep as it should be. I am holding it in my avatar to the left of this box.

Welcome to FOTMD Pa1911a1. It's always good to have another Pennsylvanian on board. You have some dulcimer history right in your hometown at the Mercer Museum. Let us know if have any questions. Some of us are historians of the mountain dulcimer and make reproductions of old instruments.
