Steve Olsen at Wandering Minstrel has been crafting some of the most carefully-chosen stick dulcimers available. For 8 years he's made sure to select only the highest quality woods. And to make his instruments even stronger than the average stick dulcimer he always laminates the necks by adding a contrasting piece of wood, which only adds to the beauty of his instruments.
This particular one is similar to his $199 version, except this one features higher-grade, more "figured" maple and walnut stock. Simply put, it's prettier. Trust me, you'll like it.
But How Does It SOUND?
Tell Us More About The Details!
This model is one of Steve's lower-priced pickin' sticks, made mainly from figured hard maple and walnut with the cedar top, but sacrifices no volume or tonal quality whatsoever.
