A banjo dulcimer is actually an Appalachian dulcimer which is modified with the addition of a vibrational membrane to the main body of the instrument. A change like that affects the tone as well as the volume of the instrument, and it operates at the active principle of the traditional banjo. Though banjo is a separate distinctive guitar like string based instrument. With a round base as membrane and the four to five strings attached plays a vital part all around. Just here at Muzikkon you can find a great collection that will define your music sensibilities and artistic skills.
Our Heartland dulcimer banjo's body bowl is made of 13 solid rosewood and lacewood staves. Neck and headstock are made of rosewood. Best quality 4:1 banjo style tuners used on this banjo. Fingerboard and bridge of this banjo are made of rosewood. Scale length for this instrument is 648mm. Solid spruce soundboard with nicely engraved rosette. The frets are arranged in a diatonic scale, just like an Appalachian mountain dulcimer, but added is the infamous "6 1/2" fret just below the octave position allowing play in Ionian mode. It has four string courses which are loop end strings: 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 DADD to make it easy to pick up and play. Comes with padded gig bag and extra strings set.
Comes with 3 Year Muzikkon warranty and 30 days money back Guarantee
