Description
BLEMISHED: As one of our most recent additions to our Roosebeck Mountain Dulcimer line, this Grace model has many great features.
Its vaulted fret board makes it lighter and as a result there is more soundboard vibration and excellent sound quality.
It has an hour glass shape and its body, neck, nut, bridge and fret board are solid walnut.
Its tail piece has a silver color and is shaped like a crown.
The soundboard is spruce and has a charming walnut skirt design on both ends, as well as 4 of the classic f-hole openings.
This model also features 4 mechanical geared right angle tuners with a 14:1 ratio and has 4 strings, including 2 melody strings, 1 middle string and 1 bass drone string.
Many tunings will work, but we recommend the traditional DAD method to make it easy to pick up and play.
The following accessories are included with item: pick, noter and owner's guide.

Traditionally, mountain dulcimers had three, equally spaced, strings: a melody string, a middle string, and a bass string.
Later developments created a 4-string dulcimer by changing the string spacing and doubling the melody string.
Doubling the melody string created greater volume to the melody line.
Contemporary dulcimers, such as ours, include extra notches on the nut to allow more personalized string patterns.
The inside doubled melody string can be removed completely to revert to the traditional 3-string set-up.
Or the Inside melody string and the middle string can both be moved over one notch to create an equal spacing between all four strings.

What is BLEMISHED?
Product codes ending in "-1(S)" or "-2(S)" are blemished. These products are new and unused with superficial blemishes that may include, blisters in the finish, scratches, dents, stains, discoloration, rust or pitting on metals, imperfect glazes, non-structural repairs such as putty in nail holes, or other surface marks. A "-1(S)" product has minor blemishes and a "-2(S)" product has moderate blemishes and/or minor repairs. The irregularity does not affect the playability or sound quality of the instrument. Product codes ending in "-3(S)" and "-4(S)" are also new and unused, but came to manufacturer needing repairs. If it's a "-3(S)," the product has been repaired, but if it's a "-4(S)," it will still require significant repairs when received by the customer. Product codes ending in "PROP" are unable to be played and are for display purposes only.

SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS: There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.

Please note: For safety during shipping, the manufacturer don't tune the instruments before sending to customers.
