Description
 
This Roosebeck "Grace" Mountain Dulcimer model has added performance features at a great 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, bridge and fret board are solid Sheesham. It has a top nut of bone. The soundboard is spruce and has a charming Sheesham skirt design on both ends, as well as 4 of the classic f-scrolls 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)

Dulcimer July 5, 2016
Reviewer: Lewis Prator from Fountain Valley, CA United States  
The dulcimer does what it's supposed to, best bargain I could find. I'd recommend Roosebeck. Only change I'd make is the end piece that the strings attach to seems awfully thin.

Mountain Dulcimer, new player December 30, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ocala, FL United States  
So far I am very pleased with the instrument.  The quality seems very good, no obvious "cheap" solution or materials used anywhere.  The sound is very good, and it feels easy to play.  This is my first MD so admittedly I do not know a lot about them yet.  However, as a woodworker I recognize the quality and for the price you will not find anything better.  I highly recommend this instrument.
