I use peg dope.   In NC where I live there is low humidity in the winter and the wood pegs have a difficult time staying in tune. In the summer and fall the wooden pegs tune and hold well.

So glad you are learning some things.

Thank you, glad to be here.  I've already learned a lot here.  I found my way here while searching for how to tune my AW Jeffreys dulcimer with slipping wooden pegs.  Found several possible solutions, and hope to learn more.

Thanks everyone for your warm welcomes! I have been spending time here already, reading and learning all I can. I'm a quiet one but will not hesitate to ask questions. I can tell there will be many good things in store for me here!

01/07/24 07:42:38PM @beckym:

Thank you so much. Do you know of a good source of sheet music for my DAA dulcimer?  I like baroque, renaissance, folk tunes, etc.  Also, I have discovered that using my fingers instead of the noter is more comfortable due to some arthritis.  I guess that’s legal? Ha

I have a small collection of electric and acoustic guitars as well as cigar box guitars and violin (some of which I built myself). I also build all my own vacuum tube guitar amplifiers.

I have a BSEE from Virginia Tech earned when vacuum tubes were still part of the curriculum. I retired 4 years ago from my job as a Satellite Communications Systems Engineer contractor with the CIA. I worked in the Intelligence Community for 40+ years. My wife and I retired to Natural Bridge Virginia in 2019.
