Used

CONSIGNMENT CRITERIA: There are many decent quality instruments hiding in attics or in need of one simple repair. Our goal is to get these instruments into the hands of folks who will play them and who appreciate a good deal on a used instrument. We are currently open to taking all types of musical instruments on consignment. The instrument must be in reasonable playing condition before we will display it. If it is not, the necessary repairs to make it so must be carried out and paid for (if we do them) before we will display it in our store. We take a 25% fee from the sale price of the instrument upon sale of the instrument. This fee is reduced to 20% for instruments over $1,000. We reserve the right to return or refuse a sellers instrument at any time if it is in the stores best interest to do so. We assume full responsibility for a sellers instrument while it is in our care.

Handmade Strumstick

A “Strumstick” or as the builder of this one called his a “Strumjo”, is an adaptation of the Appalachian lap dulcimer. It is a simple yet charming instrument with only three strings (tuned GDG) and fewer frets than our friends the guitar and ukulele. What this does is take away the possibility of playing a wrong note. You’ve only got notes that are in the scale. Whew! The downside of this, and of course there’s a downside, is that the instrument is restricted to playing almost exclusively in the key of G major. Although by creatively avoiding certain notes and highlighting others you could pull off D and C major.

It is an excellent starting point for children or people with no musical background who want to bring a little music into their lives. Also it’s light, compact design make it an excellent choice for the musician-on-the-go not wanting to take their Vintage Guild or Martin camping or hitchhiking. And the extremely adventurous can explore retuning the high string to access all sorts of different scales. for example dropping the high string one whole step allows for playing in minor keys.
