Glad to be of help.

Bill Berg makes great dulcimers. As you shop around for used dulcimers I have a suggestion. In my opinion the Apple Creek brand is one to avoid. I had one and have known others who had one. Many of their dulcimers have poor intonation and improperly spaced frets. Their tuning machines are cheap and have been known to break.

For used dulcimers generally McSpadden and Folkcraft dulcimers usually are good unless the instrument was not well taken care of.

Glad to have you join the community.

Blessings, Richard
