​CASE HUMIDFIER!

If you are humidifying a HAMMERED DULCIMER, I would recommend the cello sized dampit which can be purchased here: These can usually be placed in the back of the instrument

If you are humidifying a MOUNTAIN DULCIMER, DEPENDING on the size of your sound holes...MEDIUM TO LARGE SOUND HOLE... I would recommend the original dampit which can be purchased here:

Hygrometer

Two main things I like about this one is it's large capacity and automatic shut-off so when the water runs out, it will not jjust keep running. This is also a nice reminder to refill!

SHUBB CAPOS
I REALLY like the Shubb Capos over the clamp pr spring loaded type which over time can wear the finish off the back of the neck! The Shubb works on a cam system, adjust it with the finger screw one time and you are set to go! Very neck friendly! I've listed several hereand the main differences are nickel and brass. I use brass on my instruments with the brass hardware. One other option I have included for both banjo and guitar is the Shubb Lite Series. I have a few of these and love them! They are aluminum and very light weight doing the same job as the nickle or brass!

Steve Kaufman's
Bluegrass Workout
​Book 1 & 2

I absolutely love both of these books and in my opinion, two of the best "play-a-long" tools out there! Each book has 48 or so tunes, mostly fiddle tunes and great for any old-time player whether it is hammered dulcimer, clawhammer or mountain dulcimer and includes four one hour CDs...FOUR HOURS of playing with a band at a medium and fast speed! Watch video for complete description

Dulcimer/Guitar Straps

The reason I like these straps is BECAUSE the ends are faux leather. I have found that many leather strap ends are so thick you have to struggle and wrestle and fight to get them on an off. These have thinner pieces of leather which makes it much easier and the are adjustable as well.
GOLD TONE CC-50 - BEST INTRODUCTORY BANJO
In my opinion, the Gold Tone CC-50 is THE BEST introductory banjo out there! They are one of the most affordable and from personal eperience sound and play GREAT! The playability of this instrument is the same quality as their most expensive instrument. I've seen beginner banjo that were, well, terrible...cheaply made with the issues of the same. The GOLD TONE CC-50 is a well made quality instrument and well worth the money!

Mountain Dulcimer Capo

Easy to use, sounds great! ​Switch keys without having to relearn the tune!

This capo is made in the USA, and will accomodate fretboards up to 1 9/16" in width.
