Fun, lightweight and easy to play, our Deluxe Wildwood Dulcimer has the rich sound of a mountain dulcimer with just a little bit of banjo twang. The body style of the Wildwood allows it to be played like a guitar instead of the traditional “flat in the lap” position of the mountain dulcimer. The teardrop spruce soundboard with two F-shaped sound holes stands out in contrast to the long, thin Rosewood finger board. The overall Length is 34 1/2″, Width 7 1/8″ and Height 2 1/4″. The Wildwood has four string courses which are loop end strings: a wound string at the top, an unwound center string, and two unwound strings tuned in unison, at the bottom. The carved scroll peg head features gold colored, geared 4:1 banjo style tuners. Many tunings will work, but we recommend the traditional DADD to make it easy to pick up and play. The frets are arranged in a diatonic scale, just like an Appalachian mountain dulcimer, but added is the infamous “6 1/2″ fret just below the octave position allowing play in Ionian mode. The Bridge to nut is 24 1/2”. The possibilities are many, playing the Wildwood Dulcimer can be as easy or as complicated as you care to make it. Explore!
Moreover, A tuning tool and extra string set are included. Gig bag sold separately.
