Cost:  $ or $$

Stick Dulcimers (also are known by the trademarked name “Strumstick”) are extremely easy and fun to play. Learn more about them here. I made this one for my brother.

I picked up the empty cigar box for a few dollars.  The neck is poplar and the fretboard is oak.

I wanted to make this easy for a beginner to use, so I added numbered beads to the top of the fretboard.  Having numbered frets makes it easier to use Strumstick or dulcimer tablature.
