I finally ordered one

Yes, I am impulsive.  But i love the sound of a bowed dulcimer.  So that is where I am going to start!  I could not afford the one I wanted from Ron Gibson, so I got what could, for now.  I got a 

Roosebeck DMHRH4 4-String Mountain Dulcimer

I just hope it sounds good. I should get it in a week.  I wanted a walnut one, and I spent much time listening to the tonality of different woods.  One day I will get one made.  But for now I will just enjoy playing.  Thank you everyone for you help and comments!
