Strumstick Dulcimer 3 strings instrument



In my small friendly workshop in Stoke on Trent, I have room for 2 students due to the size of the workshop. The Strumstick dulcimer has just 3 strings and is tuned to D. A. D. This instrument is very easy to play due to the major scale fret spacing. On this course, you will learn about........ Wood selection, fretwork, shaping, accurate measuring, bandsaw use, sanding and finishing etc. No experience is needed for this course just a bit of common sense! People do use this course as an introduction to the art of acoustic guitar making. Instrument building course 8 hours with 30 mins for lunch.

Free parking and security on site. At the end of the day You will take home your new instrument.


8 hours (flexible times to suit)

Cancellation policy

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.
