Thank you to all, for the welcoming & encouraging comments. I've been playing for a couple of years (excluding the pandemic "time-out") with the Almost Heaven Dulcimer Club in Charleston, WV. It's a fun group that welcomes and encourages new players as well -- must be something in the dulcimer DNA?
My current instrument is a handcrafted, 3-string, dulcimer on extended loan from my sister. It was built and gifted to here by a friend, and I'd like to get it back to her soon. I'm looking to buy a dulcimer of my own, and having my sis join me in playing
Many of my club friends play McSpadden or New Harmony dulcimers, and to me they all sound great. Any feedback or recommendations on selecting an instrument would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks again to all,
