Stick Dulcimer Info
What is a Stick Dulcimer / Pickin' Stick?
These sweet, charismatic instruments are direct relatives of the American Mountain Dulcimer. Our Stick Dulcimers are fashioned after Ressler's Pickin' Stick.
Having only 3 strings & using natural harmonies, Stick Dulcimers are designed for a fun & easy playing style at every skill level. Beginner players find them extremely "User Friendly." (We get folks playing a basic song in about 2 minutes.) Advanced musicians tell us they love the way our instruments sound & feel!
A lil' more info...
Beginners enjoy learning the basics of playing stringed instruments, such as fretting, picking and strumming out melodies, with out the fuss of knowing cords, hitting wrong notes and other technicalities. These instruments naturally encourage personal growth and understanding of music, opening doors for those people who never thought they could learn to play an instrument.
Being light weight and easy to hold, whether one is sitting or standing, these instruments are ideal for folks who might have a harder time with a heavier/bulkier instrument. We've had many seasoned players comment on how our Stick Dulcimers allow them to enjoy more play time :)
