Subject: RE: Help, urgent advice on lap dulcimer
A very good country bass player once said that if all of his basses he loaned out ever came back at once, his wife would probably throw him out of the house!

I have just one suggestion. If your shop was willing to loan you an instrument on trial, you might want to try any others they have to see which one you really want. Different woods, lengths, fret and string numbers, and shapes all produce different sounds. The 'action' might be different as well.

Have fun with your dulceemore, you'll not regret getting it.
