Help! I can't get both sides of the treble bridge in tune! Everyone who plays the hammered dulcimer will at some point or other come across some variation of this problem. There are simply too many strings on the darned thing for tuning to be smooth and easy every time, and it can be quite frustrating when you can get one side or the other of the treble bridge in tune, but not both sides at the same time. The good news is that (assuming your hammered dulcimer is structurally sound) you can most likely solve the problem yourself!
