We have three different stands, all similar to the photo at right, but different heights and angles. The sit down version is shown. We also have ladies height, and gents height stand up stands. This type stand is commonly referred to as a scissor stand.
Ours are a little different than others in that the dulcimer is solidly supported on the (padded) wood ends of the legs, not resting on a strap or string. Some advanced dulcimer playing techniques require a very solid stand under the instrument. Our stands fold up into a small bundle that can rest between the handles of the case, and the whole thing be easily carried in one hand.
