Details

This beautiful little Dulcimer is great fun to play, and actually very easy as well! Tuned D-A-DD with a double course of high D strings, the frets allow the player to play a Diatonic scale in the key of D with a flattened 7th in the scale as well. The theory goes that it is hard to make a discordant sound with a Dulcimer like you can with a chromatically fretted instrument, but I am sure that if you try hard enough you could!

Strummed or picked this instrument gives you a great big smile on your face!
