hi
i am new to the list.
i have restored an old family dulcimer. it is the same as one i see listed in the Henry Ford museum. it is from 1876.
wonderful stories it could tell.
they used to play it on the evenings with a piano.
It was my brother in laws.
it spent many years in his
New York city basement.
i restored the 70 piano strings and tightened the seams.
he also had the old time piano wrench and so i tuned it.
it has a lovely old sound with the original strikers.
one has to get used to the note setup.
any help an playing this?
i also wondered if it had a value
or is it just for fun.
i will enclose a picture.
gerrie henchy
