Fun, lightweight, and easy to play, this Roosebeck Deluxe Wildwood Stick Dulcimer has the rich sound of a mountain dulcimer, plays like a guitar, and has just a little bit of banjo twang. This deluxe model has Sheesham sides and back, "F-Holes" sound holes, and a headstock with a carved wooden scroll, and four geared 4:1 banjo style tuners. Extra String Set Included. Free Shipping.

The body style of the Wildwood allows it to be played like a guitar instead of the traditional "flat in the lap" position of the mountain dulcimer. The teardrop spruce soundboard with two rosettes stands out in contrast to the long, thin rosewood fingerboard. This fusion Stick Dulcimer has three string courses: a wound string at the top, an unwound center string, and two unwound strings tuned in unison, at the bottom. Many tunings will work, but we recommend the traditional DAD to makes it easy to pick up and play. The frets are arranged in a diatonic scale, just like an Appalachian mountain dulcimer, but added is the infamous "6 ½" fret just below the octave position allowing play in Ionian mode. The possibilities are many, playing the Wildwood Dulcimer can be as easy or as complicated as your care to make it. Explore!

Special Note: The strings put on the instruments in our workshops, while playable, are put through some rigorous testing. They should probably be replaced for improved playability, sound quality, and better tuning shortly after you receive the instrument.
