I First Saw/Heard A Mountain Dulcimer in Warren May's shop where my friend was having him make adjustments to his instrument. Eyeballed a couple and challenged myself to make one. Now working on #6.

"My first build was 35" but that was because I had no clue what I was doing. My #2 to current #6 are 27" so I guess I could build any size you like. "

Hi Phil, 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.
