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)
