I went to buy a new dulcimer from Scott Rhodes, a member here, and ended up buying 2! I am so happy with them. One is a 2003 McSpadden walnut teardrop that is in great shape and sounds wonderful. The other is a cedar dulcimer that we think was made by Dorsey Williams. I have been playing mostly chord/melody with my current dulcimers and using 3 strings. I am going to leave both melody strings on these and use them for noter playing. Thank you, Scott!
