I'm really happy with the Seagull Merlin dulcimer guitar (Mahogany) I recently got. The diatonic running (D Maj) makes it really east to get started even for complete beginners because its hard to play a wrong note. It has a pretty full sound for such a small instrument, in part thanks to the pair of high-D strings tuned in unison. With only 7 frets and 3 of its 4 strings tuned to D you would think this thing would be pretty limited but its not. Once you spend a little time with it you find its great for creating melodies for songs and playing with various chord voicings. Give this a try if you're looking for something for inspiration that is a little different that is also easy to play. I'm looking forward to spending a lot more time with it and also get my family interested in it because its the closest thing to instant musical gratification for beginners.
This is hands down the most fun I've had playing an instrument. I have been playing guitar for 13 years but this thing is so fun. I don't know if its the key that its tuned in that gets me or just the fact that there are NO bad notes. When you slide up the neck or down it is amazing.... This is a must have! I am going back to get another one today for my girlfriend. Hence forth we will now be known as "The Dueling Dulcimers" I didn't put it down for 9 hrs.
I recently purchased this at guitar center in Southington CT, and instantly fell in love. I'm a bassist of 12+ years but I saw this dulcimer and it literally blew me away. I have such a hard time putting down. My suggestion is that anyone who plays an instrument go buy a strumstick dulcimer from seagull merlin and you too just may fall in love!
