Cigar Box (?) Mountain Dulcimer Designs

Started this discussion. Last reply by Paul Craig Jan 26. 32 Replies

Having built a few standard CBG's and Strummersticks (almost all 3-strings tuned GDg),, I'm intrigued by the idea of a mountain dulcimer.    I'm guessing the lap-style would be to reverse the…Continue
