I always look for things like that. Never know when something special (like your find) will turn up. Very glad that you got the little dulcimer. It probably wasn't being played or appreciated, now it will be. That's great!
U R Right it had stickies on the back so bet it was hangin on the wall!!!

Good for you! Why can I never find stuff like that...?

great find!

 

Play the scales up the fretboard on each string to make sure the frets are correctly placed and you get the proper notes.  First Act instruments are made, if memory serves, in Roumania, and the workmanship is often minimal.  If you've got one with good fret spacing you did indeed get a good deal for $10!!
Thanks Ken...........I did and the scales are there for perfect notes!!!
Wouldn't it be nice to find something like that in Montana.  Up here for the majority of the people when you say "dulcimer"  they say what?
Wow Nancy, you really did well with that.  I have had my second dulcimer with me several times lately and was able to get others to join me.  It is really fun.  So glad you found that incredible deal. 
Nice! Inspired by this I went to a bunch of yard sales last weekend and found a starter fiddle for $10!

Visit Strumelia's Beginner Noter-Drone dulcimer Blog

I have a main blog for Traditional style mountain dulcimer playing here: Mountain Dulcimer Noter-drone Blog This is an old style of playing where you only fret your notes on the melody string, while letting the drones strings ring open. In my blog, I express my personal views about playing, I offer free TAB and free beginner videos, and I try to help beginners understand in a very basic simple way the 'mysteries' of playing the mountain dulcimer in traditional modal noter/drone style.
