The Strumstick is designed for non-players, and is delightfully easy to learn. The Strumstick was created by Bob McNally (designer of the Martin Backpacker Guitar) and has a perfect blend of ease and versatility. At HMT we also call them "travel dulcimers" - they are tuned the same as a lap/Appalachian dulcimer. The G-29 Slimpicker is the "original" strumstick, with spruce top. The SlimPicker is shorter, narrower and quieter than the D-33 Grand. It has a cheery, bright tone, and it is tuned to key of G (3 frets higher than the D Grand). A consistent reaction when people hear it for the first time is "how do you get so much sound out of such a little body". Utterly portable, for adults traveling light and also perfect for kids. Full instructions, cord strap, chords and songs included. Handmade in USA, of all solid woods.
