Thank you for the warm welcome Richard.  Really looking forward to participating in this community.  What I have read on the Dulcimer is that it is an easy instrument to learn.  But I haven't found anything easy about it yet!! lol This may just be what I need to get me going. Looking forward to the journey.

The Warren May dulcimers are very beautiful, he sells on Facebook too but they were a little out of my league - not overpriced but taxes and postage to UK can be quite high

02/17/21 03:45:03PM @richard-streib:

Walnut Valley had a kiosk at Epcot Center, Walt Disney World . That is where I saw them first, picked up the brochure in October 1991 saved it and ordered my first dulcimer from them receiving it in early 1993. I have purchased several used dulcimores which were hardly played at all. I got one McSpadden used which still had the pick and noter stick in a little envelope which was still sealed up. I have a Warren May dulcimer a man purchased going through Berea Kentucky, stopped at the shop and purchased it and never played it. He gave it to his sister who sold it to me. Some sweet deal out there sometimes.

Have a great day.

02/17/21 02:58:25PM @catwheezle:

finally sussed how this board works!

thank you Richard for the information, that is so fascinating and also Kenneth Longfield has very kindly sent me the PDF brochure. The one I bought is the 91 model and it too is in mint condition with case (lucky me).

I think where the shop was based (in some kind of tourist park judging by the brochure) meant that some might have been bought on a whim, or having heard the people in the shop playing them, and so remained un-played.  I already play guitar and sing so I'm hoping the dulcimer will play harmonies for me or the main tune and I will do harmonies. I'm also half-Irish so it will be a fascinating journey into folk music I hope, and a touch back to my roots!

Thank you for the brilliant information.

Hi Richard!

Thank you for your kind welcome. I am glad to have found FOTMD; there are so many friendly and helpful people here. You've been playing a long time now. It seems a lot of people who start playing the dulcimer stay with it a long time, which says a lot about the instrument and their people! I look forward to learning a lot, and to hopefully progressing to the point where I can "give back" and contribute to new people a bit as well.

Thanks again and blessings,

Fumble Fingers (Mary)
