Pickin' Stick

Fun and easy to learn! TK O'Brien's Pickin' Stick is like a cross between a guitar and mountain dulcimer. It is held like a guitar but constructed like the dulcimer. It uses a play by numbers approach like the dulcimer but the number system is "upside down" from that of the dulcimer. It's tuned to DAD. Because it plays like the dulcimer and is tuned to DAD, you can, with some easy adapting, use dulcimer tune books as a music resource. It has a great sound!

This instrument is 31 1/2 inches long. The soundbox top, neck and back are bass wood. The fretboard is cherry. The soundhole is an attractive laser cut Celtic Knot rosette insert. The tuning gears are chrome with a closed gearbox.  3 strings, key of D.  Made in U.S.
