Prussia valley and McSpadden for sale

Postby flyingcursor » Mon Aug 22, 2011 1:34 pm

I have a Prussia Valley hourglass with a 1.5 and 5.5 fret for sale. It also has a half fret under the middle string. It was built as a baritone but I have it strung Dad. I don't know what wood it's made of but I'll post a pic.
I also have an hourglass McSpadden, 1 year old with no added frets for sale as well. This has a walnut body and back but I don't recall what the top is. I'll post a pic.

These are both great playing and sounding dulcimers but I always play my Modern MD and my Ginger so these rarely get played. $300 a piece and I will ship to the continental US.

Where are the photographs? Also, I guess you meant a 6.5 fret and not a 5.5 fret on the Prussia model, right?

Hi,

I haven't posted the pics yet. I have to take them. The McSpadden looks like the majority of McSpaddens. The PV has a 5 1/2 which means you can get a Bb and F higher on the fretboard. It also has a 6 1/2 but I didn't specifically mention it because most dulcimers have them these days.

Never heard of a 5.5 fret. I am curious as to what songs could be played using this odd numbered fret.

THat's a good question. I haven't really tried using it but I'm sure there would be some nice variety with those extra notes.
Both of them have strap buttons. The McSpadden has a soft case and an extra set of strings. I'm asking $300 for each one.
