Any dulcimer fans on Moes? My ex asked me for a value on a mountain dulcimer that was her late-boyfriend's. Im guessing it's at least 20 years old.
My brother used to build them but the construction looks more elaborate than home built. She said she cant find a brand name on it, but some the bird cutouts look like the kind of work of Ron Gibson. I'll try to post a pic
...the fact that there's no label in it probably means it's a one-off.
Not necessarily. Many small-time/independents made/make label-less instruments. I had such an exemplary example back in the '70s. It was not a one-off, Pete made quite a few, and ran a well known folk music shop.
Nice looking dulcimer, BTW.

That is a nice one.
My first one I built from a kit and customized with a piezo pickup and artistic soundhole cutouts. My second one was built by Deering in 1980 before they went banjo-only. Still have the Deering and a Seagull dulcimer.
Several years ago I bought a nice dulcimer from a little shop in Eureka Springs Arkansas. I like them but after a period I fell away from playing it and eventually sold it as my playing was a bit lacklustre to say the least
