You'll sound good right from the start and you can play songs the first day. The Strumstick feels good to play, you'll pick it up again and again. We designed the Strumstick for people who don't play any music, and are sure they can't play any music. There are no wrong notes; there are just the notes of a simple scale. Since there are no wrong notes, there are no mistakes; you can have fun making sounds without worrying about "getting it right".
This is the original Strumstick design. The primary key is G, also tunable down as low as D or up to A. Useable keys are D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, and A. See also Alternate Tunings in the Players Area. We also make a larger Strumstick pitched lower (the D Strumstick).
The G strumstick is 29 1/2 long by 4 wide by 1 deep. The body and neck are Padouk (a rich red hardwood from Africa), the soundboard is Spruce, and the back is Maple. The tuning is G D G (one octave higher than the D). The lower G is the same note as the guitar third string. The frets are placed to give a diatonic scale, with an additional flatted seventh. Pitch range is 2 1/2 octaves. The Strumstick has it's own unique sound, bright, clear, and snappy. People say it reminds them of a blend of banjo, dulcimer, and mandolin. The strings are loop end (banjo or mandolin), .023 wound, .014 plain, .010 plain. Includes a free instruction book and instruction CD. Case available.
