nickp Beginer's mountain dulcimer? (21) RE: Beginer's mountain dulcimer? 10 Dec 14

To get round the loss of sound make (or buy if there's a suitable one) a 'possum board'. Basically a flat piece of wood that lifts the instrument off the knees and allows it to resonate. Although McSpadden sell them for their models I'm in the process of making one from an old pine shelf about 1/2 inch deep. Several examples of photos by googling.
