Mountain Dulcimers - Concert Dulcimers
Mountain Dulcimers produce a sweet, soothing sound, and are one of the easiest stringed instruments in the world to play. Anyone who can hum or sing a tune can easily learn to play it on the dulcimer. A diatonic fret scale makes the mountain dulcimer a great instrument for playing melodies. However, it is not limited to this most basic playing style. In the hands of expert players, the dulcimer becomes a very complex instrument.
Gernandt Stringed Instruments hand crafts four Standard Models, the Concert Dulcimer, Hourglass Dulcimer, Teardrop Dulcimer, and other dulcimers, each having its own unique blend of aesthetics and voicing.
The Hand-Made Concert Dulcimer Model
The concert Dulcimers larger unique body style gives it the fullest, most balanced tone and volume of all Gernandt's dulcimer models. It is designed with a 27.5-inch scale length. This model has become the performers choice, a true joy to own and play.
This dulcimer comes standard with five strings (a double melody, double middle and a single bass). This arrangement increases the volume, tone and balance of the entire custom-built instrument.
All Gernandt dulcimers are custom built instruments with the six and one half frets. Additional frets are available on request.
