Unitar Strummer

Results coming soon

50 votes 6 comments

PRODUCT STORY
Gregory says: The Unitar Strummer has a diatonic fret pattern like a stick dulcimer, and only one string. I stamp numbers next to the frets as part of a simple "play by number" system using dulcimer tabs found online. I build these using recycled or reclaimed locally available hardwoods. The one pictured is reclaimed Florida Bald Cypress with a cherry wood fingerboard. The fret wire is nickle mandolin frets from Steward MacDonald. It uses any gauge ball end guitar string, just tune it to the appropriate key.

We're impressed that Gregory's Unitar Strummer can make music with just one string! Would you want to jam out with this instrument?

Even if this were never used to make music it is still a quite beautiful piece of decor due to the mosaic tiling.
