Gdg tuned Stick Dulcimer coming soon

The earliest instruments I made of this type were back in 1999 and were very short scaled for my kids to play. When I started making these for musicians I increased the scale length to guitar lengths but kept the same tuning. Around 2006 I changed to the Mountain Dulcimer pitch of Dad for comparability with that instruments and the tabs available. My current offering this year has the original tuning but with a more ideal scale length, this will make playing tunes even easier and it has the benefit of 12 years plus of making them.
