Strumstick Dulcimer instrument gift
My Strumsticks are all handmade in my studio in Staffordshire the woods used are Cherry, Mahogany, Spruce, Rosewood etc. I choose quality woods for tonal reasons Easy to play tunes because scale is" Doh Ray Me" . Its a major scale so excellent for simple melodies. The tone is excellent and if you type in Youtube :- " Strumstick handmade in UK" you will see and hear the instrument. Thanks for looking and if you have any questions please select 'message the maker.' I build other types of dulcimers too also ukuleles and Steampunk guitars !
How this was made
Cherry, Mahogany, Spruce, Rosewood etc. I choose quality woods for tonal reasons Easy to play tunes because scale is" Doh Ray Me" . Its a major scale so excellent for simple melodies.
My love of woodcraft was due to a meeting with a guitarist friend who had made an acoustic guitar. We talked about his guitar for many hours and I thought it would be a challenge for me to have a go! Well that was 6 years ago and now in 2021 I am in a small workshop in Stoke where I build various instruments. The Strumstick instrument build is a great way to get to grips with fine woodworking and is an ideal step towards acoustic guitar building. No experience in woodwork is needed.
