Description

hi, everyone! Well! All! the Holidays are pretty well over now, & it`s back to work or shall I, say What, Gretchn just loves to do! play, write, compose music! Write, Writings & Poems, her Original Writings & Poems, Acting with her Pets & her own Original Shows, Setting up Instmts Intonation(s) & Songs of course. Also, she just purchased a brand new full size Hourglass Mountain Dulcimer from Mid-east Mftg, thru Amazon.ca & just love`s it! a DMHRK 4 string Roosebeck it, has that older kind of sound, I, mean it`s a "solid kind" of a "sound", & gently "Mellow", not "Harsh", like many "Scratchier Sounding", dulcimers with different exotic & or hardwood tops or whatever other woods of many newer dulcimers out there of today`s years , of even some top brands to! .... like something you would buy years back tho` a very good sound to it!.whether it`s played for, Pop, Western, or Classical, or even Church/e, it`s all! a Good! Sound! So! Very!, Nice & Mellow & Much Harmony! She, first thought that the strings were really high & they were., tho` after accessing the instrument, suddenly! thought of the idea of tuning down a couple of Octaves, to release some tension on the strings etc. & tuned to a Bb F & G etc making this new Dulcimer sound even Better! & more comfortable & easier on the fingers also, & It, has extra notches cut into the bridge & the Nut for either another string, .. or what she, did was move over 1 Melody strg to a notch there & it gave all even nice! strg apart spacing! &.seperated the Strings Harmony, so! please watch our new 3 videos for more in depth! about this!, We know you will enjoy Gretchn`s 3 new Videos of Her New Roosebeck Dulcimer.Thank You! TheBanjoGuy2 & Pets .. 2014.. Dulcimer Works .. Gretchn, believe`s if you want a real top notch dulcimer with lower string height & all, then you`ll have to really dish out about another $300. to double this one`s price, & will cost you some $600. approx. & it will also have a much longer scale neck like some 27" or 28", which is Too Long for smaller hands etc,especially from the nut or 1st frets & up in the lower to mid range of the fretboard from the 1st to the 10th to 12 frets etc. making Your thumb & middle finger a Very Longer Or Wider Stretching Distance to!, especially to play slower or classical or orchestral churchy types of Sounds with a dulcimer,as the Frets are wider spaced apart from each other right from the nut or 1st fret & up to the 10th or 12th fret & so on!, but for My means, this one will do & play very nicely for My personal satisfaction I, don`t Really need any other one now! pleased! to the Max! & you don`t really have to break the bank at the same "Time", this I, believe Even has A Much Nicer Tone & is Even Mellower then a lot of other Dulcimers with just the 4 notches & no extra`s cut in the Nut etc,, .. Also, it`s Really a Better Idea to Really Think & Look over many many different Mountain Dulcimers out there so you will get one you will Really love for a lifetime to of course Oh! this one here is not hard to love, I, might add! It`s Really beautifully made, it`s Very Attractive & Sounds Great! :) We are very glad that We, purchased this one! & How it All turned out with what we found for extra features we did not even expect to get!, love Gretchn of Gretchn & Pets & TheBanjoGuy2 .. see the review of this Roosebeck Mountain Dulcimer By Halloween Witch Gretchn on www.Amazon.com as of Feb 25/2014 ..
