I often play standing up with my dulcimer on a keyboard stand. This pad makes sure the instrument doesn't slide around (or worse, off!). It's shaped for a Folkcraft dulcimer, but it works great with my other one too.
the non-slip pad doesn't work for holding the dulcimer on the knees. It works okay with the wood on the dulcimer but not on the fabric of clothing.
The non-slip pad works great, just as advertised. Without it, the dulcimer wants to escape with vigorous playing!
It definitely does what it is designed for. I would recommend this to anyone not wanting to install buttons.
Such a simple idea that works so well. It works on my lap or on my dulcimer stand. Packs easily in the case.
