Description
 
This Roosebeck "Grace" Mountain Dulcimer, Knotwork model has many great features at a good value! Its vaulted fret board makes it lighter and as a result there is more soundboard vibration and excellent sound quality. It has an hour glass shape and its body, neck, nut, bridge and fret board are solid rosewood. Its end peg has a silver color and is shaped like a crown. The soundboard is spruce and has a charming rosewood skirt design on both ends, as well as 4 of the classic Knotwork openings. This model also features 4 mechanical geared right angle tuners with a 14:1 ratio and has 4 strings, including 2 melody strings, 1 middle string and 1 bass drone string. Many tunings will work, but we recommend the traditional DAD method to make it easy to pick up and play. Extra String Set, Pick and Slide included! Free Shipping.

The 6 1/2 and 13 1/2 Frets This model includes the 6 1/2 and 13 1/2 frets. Most early dulcimers had a strictly diatonic scale; that is, the frets were placed so as to produce a major scale (do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do) with no extra half steps. More recently, dulcimer players have found that the placement of an extra fret between the 6th and 7th frets and between the 13th and 14th frets allows two things; (1) a major scale can be produced starting at another point (on the open string), and (2) most songs containing "accidental" notes can be played. The 6 1/2 and 13 1/2 frets add versatility. The disadvantage is that it takes a while to get used to the extra frets if you have been playing a dulcimer without it. Important Specifications:

Neck at Nut: 1.25 inches in width
Neck at Body Joint: 1.25 inches in width
Nut: 1.25 inches in width, made from rosewood
Scale Length: 25.5 inches 4 tuning pegs/levers
18 Metal Frets (Including the 6 1/2 and 13 1/2 Frets)

My first dulcimer November 4, 2014
Reviewer: Michael Lafferty from Warr Acres, OK United States  
I'm enjoying my new dulcimer it is very nice quality for the dollars. Almost addictive. I just mounted a drum trigger pick up on it and it works great.
As far as service...  I ordered on Thursday from Florida and received it in Oklahoma on Saturday. What took so long??😃. Very pleased will recommend and hopefully order again myself
