4 String, Scroll Peghead, Teardrop with Walnut top, back and sides.
The McSpadden Standard dulcimers have a 28 1/2″ vibrating string length and are usually tuned in the Key of D with 6 1/2 and 13 1/2 frets included. The basic setup is D-A-AA. From that setup you can use any of the common tunings. If you expect to play only in D-A-dd, we recommend ordering the bridge compensation option to optimize playability in that tuning. Standard case, pick, noter, instruction book and warranty included. Popular options with a standard dulcimer include: Bridge Compensation; Ebony or Micarta Fretboard Overlay (Fretboard only on Scrolls) ; Squeakless Strings; Extra Frets; Pro Case Upgrade (foam core); Strap Buttons (Chrome, Black or Gold).
