A friend of mine just bought one of those cheap Apple Creek's for her husband as a starter dulcimer and after I got done tuning it up, it did not sound half-bad although I would replace the bass D string with a brrass wound one. If he chooses to continue with it, he can purchase a more professional one.

Rose,

Several of the builders on this forum make 'student' dulcimers. They are neither cheap (as in cutting corners or poorly made) or settling for less. David Lynch sells his student for $125 and has a trade up policy, if you would like to upgrade sometime in the future. To hear him tell it, he's never had a trade in. I own one of his students and it is a great dulcimer. My niece is using it a present. Call him, or one of the others. They are all very nice people and will help you, if possible.

Sorry about your experience.

I have a Berg beginner, from Mountain Made Music, and I really like it. Nothing fancy, but it's got a good tone and easy action, holds tune very well, and handles retuning nicely. It's about $100 on its own or $150 as part of a package.

It's way better than the Apple Creek I played around with at the music store, and it's a lot more, well, more everything than the cardboard dulcimer I had before. How it compares to some of the more expensive instruments I don't know, but it works for me, and I have no plans to upgrade anytime soon.

Take Care,

Ryan
