Thanks for the welcome. Not very many dulcimers players in my neck of the woods (northeastern NC).  Looking forward to learning and hopefully improving.

Thank you for your warm welcome.  I am also looking at some used dulcimers on Shopgoodwill.com.  There is a Bill and Laura Berg I've bid on, but I'm pretty sure it will go above my bid.  My husband has also expressed an interest in the dulcimer, so perhaps together we can learn.   Have you any experience with or  personal knowledge of the Berg dulcimers? I know Bill Berg is still making them and I found his website.

Thanks for the welcome. I have enough challenges just trying to learn to play ukulele, without another instrument right now, so I am offering this one for sale.

It has a soft gig bag, and has rarely been played. It's in like new condition. My wife paid $350 for it, I'll take $250 including freight, shipped to CONUS.

I got her a Seagull Merlin and she much prefers it.

Pictures are below.
