GUEST,Walking Eagle Help - Buying a Dulcimer (18) RE: Help - Buying a Dulcimer 06 Sep 01


I'm not sure what the value is, price wise. There are many good ( and bad ) makers of dulcimers out there. Just be sure there are no problems in the box. You can sometimes check by using a dental mirror and a small flexible flashlight through the sound holes. Make sure it has sound pegs in it and that they are not loose. Check to see that the strings are secured at the heel and that there is no pulling away in that area. Constant string tension is a killer for these small beauties.

Have fun playing!
