Hello everyone,
I want to build a strummer for granddaughter, 17" scale. My ??? is what strings do I use for basic dulcimer tuning,( D-A-D, etc.)? Does the short scale dictate the type of strings one can use and does that short scale dictate the tuning one can use, i.e. metal or nylon, thickness??? Thanks to all in advance!!

Hello. I just joined the group as I'm making a Tennissee music box. Dulcimer Day in Duluth is coming soon. I want to have one or two to offer along with my assortment of guits, fiddles, amps etc. .. Dave

Two of my efforts. 2 Feral Flying Pig boxes and 5 small Padron boxes.

Comment by FerneL on April 3, 2016 at 10:01am

Sadly the box was verry used during a transport to a show, but it still cool to play !!

Comment by FerneL on April 3, 2016 at 10:00am

Built only for fun but in fact it's pleasant to play even on 2 strings we call it the windows !! It's in strong plexiglass with a piezo !!

A single coil duclitar !!

Comment by Rooster Reaves on April 3, 2016 at 4:46am

That's a really nice Dulcitar!!!  Did you do a short scale?  I've been wanting to make one like that.

Comment by Bluesheart on April 2, 2016 at 8:19am

Celtic themed Dulcitar. Having a lot of fun with it. Trying to learn some Celtic/Scottish tunes for it.
