Hi Richard!  Unfortunately I won't be able to see or play the dulcimer yet as it's miles away in Auckland in the N Island.  I live in the S Island.  We are planning to go there shortly before Christmas, so will have to wait until then.  I note that it's considerably bigger and heavier than my current instrument, so will take some getting used to.

He was such a talented man! He played for me and showed me his workshop and built me a custom beautiful cherrywood dulcimer. I lived most of my life in Alaska and was exploring my roots in Tennessee when I met him and I was blessed to him be my first exposure to my country roots and music of the mountains. Thank you so much for the info about him!

Thank you so much!  Being in the foothills I've heard dulcimers and always enjoyed their sound.  Do you have any recommendations on a good luthier?  I'd prefer to support someone in North Carolina, but I'm open to all suggestions.  Thank you for your time!

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.

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
