seeking a new instrument

Recommended Posts

I am considering a new instrument, and I'm looking for free advice

I play mostly 'fiddle tunes' but I do have some more melodic pieces in the repertoire.

I would like at least 16/15 or larger and I like the models with extra bass.  I'm open to a used instrument

I think a 16/15 or larger is a good choice. For fiddle tunes you probably want a dulcimer with less sustain so that you don't muddy the sound. I think this will work well for the melodic pieces as well. A longer sustain is good for ballads and contemplative tunes. I can't suggest a specific instrument, but as you look ask about sustain and listen to the instruments.
