maldenny Flexi-frets for dulcimer - anyone use them? (43) RE: Flexi-frets for dulcimer - anyone use them? 20 Jul 03

To save a number of nice dulcimers being unnecessarily butchered, why not try a "Bulbul Tarang". It looks like a cross between a cheaply made dulcimer and a cash register, the cash register keys stopping the strings right across the fretboard and the right hand using a pick as per a normal dulcimer.

I bought one as a curiosity in Bristol (UK) recently, and, just like buses, within a month three had appeared at our weekly session! It doesn't sound too much like a dulcimer, and has a sound of its own, but it sounds really nice on medieval or traditional French tunes.

If anyone is interested I can give more info.
