GUEST,Arkie help with a fretted dulcimer (9) RE: help with a fretted dulcimer 27 Nov 15

There is no standard for length of the dulcimer or fret board or width or depth either. Dulcimer makers would sometimes take measurements from existing fretboards and dulcimers and follow those. The actual critical measurement is from the nut to the bridge and an accurate placement of frets. Dulcimers with shorter fretboards that I have seen generally have a higher pitch.
