Subject: RE: Help: Dulcimer amplification
#1 is the make of dulcimer...#2 might be to experiment with different surfaces to set it on...(perhaps a thin board between lap & dulcimer)...#3 would be different types of pick...(plastic rings more than fingertips)...#4 is the room and where you sit in it...

all these assume you are avoiding getting into mechanical/electric pick-ups....

some instruments are just plain harder to make loud, (get your friends to play softer...*smile*
