Acoustic Strum Stick By Smokey Mtn.dulcimer For Sale
New model Acoustic Strum Stick by Smokey Mtn. Dulcimer
This Strum stick is the new model that I have designed to have more sound .This instrument is one of the easest of all instruments to play. You only put your finger on the noting string [bottom string] and strum all 3 strings to get a wounderful sound. It is hard to discribe the beautiful sound that comes from this instrument. It has a Diatonic scale which we all learned in grade school, Do ,Ray Mi scale which gives all the full notes all on one string. I also put in a 6 1/2 fret for sharps or flats depending on how you tune. There are many tunings for this instrument. The body is large so it has alot of sound. The length is approx.35 inches long, The body is approx. 14 inches long, 6" wide. The neck is made fromRed Oakwood whichis for the strength and it is a very stable wood.
I use real wood, no ply wood. The back is real Poplar and the front Is Eastern Red Cedar. The strum stick on is a model of the basic strumstick. Every instrument is built exactly like themodel except the woods will vary in color and design. Mother nature does this. I choose the best woods I can get and I have never seen 2 boards with the exact color and pattern. Each and every instrument has its onuniqueness. The pattern and color combitions will vary from one instrument to another. I have had people say, I want one just exactly like the one shown on , That is impossiable. all the strumsticks will haveits owncolor and wood design.It has 3 strings with 3 Geared guitar tuners for a very easy tuning. This is a great instrument. If you want a louder instrument with the strum stick or dulcimer fret board and ease of playing , than this is it. Try one and you will love it. I build these each one by hand .
