Exclusive from TK O'Brien's is a new all solid wood 4 string dulcimer. Walnut throughout with a spruce or walnut top.
Dimensions are 34 1/2 inches long, 7 1/8 inches wide lower bout, 1 3/4 inches deep and the fretboard is a comfortable 1 1/2 inches wide. The scale length is 25 1/2 inches. The vaulted fretboard increases resonance. The nut is glued in. It has a zero fret for easy tuning. The 6 1/2 fret and 13 1/2 fret are included. The bridge is a floating style that is not glued in but is marked on the sides of the fretboard so that when you change strings you align it with the marks. A floating bridge is helpful when over time you need to make changes in the bridge position to correct for intonation changes. Strings are TK O'Brien's and sizes are melody .012, middle .014 and bass .024. Tuning gears are closed gearbox chrome machines.
The soundhole is a hummingbird on the lower bout and vines on the upper bout.
Great for the casual or beginning dulcimer player, it comes in at a reasonable cost and is available with or without a carrying case and beginners book. Comes with pick and noter.
