Wenge Stick Dulcimer

Occasionally some interesting hardwood offcuts find their way into our woodstore.

Kieron (who was featured in this post) recently found some Wenge offcuts and took them home to make this fantastic piece

It’s sound is somewhere between a banjo and acoustic guitar. Because of the scale you cant play a wrong note.
