 Product Description

As one of our most recent additions to our Roosebeck Mountain Dulcimer line, this Grace model has many great features! Its arched 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 sheesham. Its end peg has a silver color and is shaped like a crown. The soundboard is spruce and has a charming sheesham skirt design on both ends, as well as 4 of the classic f-hole 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. The following accessories are included with item: pick, noter, and owners guide.

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.
