I started to tune the dulcimer and immediately broke the bass string. The wooden pegs are so beautiful I am having a difficult time thinking about changing them out. I might have to try Strumelia's suggestion and try the peg stuff! The extra frets ???? I DON'T PLAY IN DAA! Well I am going to give it a try. After replacing the bass string I was able to tune the dulcimer and when I strummed the richest sound came out. The dulcimer is so light weight it feels like I am holding a feather. My wife has an Angel Wing Harp tuned to DAA. We are going to learn a couple of songs - the harp uses the same dulcimer tab - and play the two instruments together and see how that goes.

I have spoken to the store and they said there would be no problem to change out the tuners or to add the frets. They told me a lot of Warren May owners are doing that from that time period. They said it does not affect the value of the instrument.
