      Strumbly Kit


      Difficulty Rating

      Strumbly has a lot going for it. Although it is a simple woodworking project, there is a nice Wow-Factor when you show people the completed instrument. It looks more complicated than it is. (But don't tell your friends that!)

      Musically, it is literally as easy as 1-2-3. The numbers stamped on the side of the neck mean you can "play-by-number." We've got a songbook with over 125 play-by-number songs to keep you plenty busy. A great back-porch picker!

      Strumbly

      Project Overview

      You can expect to spend between 10-15 hours building Strumbly. You will do some gluing and clamping as you assembly the body. The main challenge here is keeping everything lined up on your centerline. Our directions will coach you through this process. You will learn to do some simple fret work as you set up the neck. You have some options for decorating. Fin will do some sanding and apply a finish.

      Tools you'll need.

      You'll need to supply your own woodworking glue (Elmer's or Titebond), a few different grits of sandpaper (100, 180, and 320), a few clamps or weights, an electric, drill, and the finish of your choice (paint, stain, polyurethane, lacuer, etc.). An electric hand sander and a router can come in handy but aren't necessary.

      Here are some helpful links for you to get the most out of your Strumbly.

      Not up to the level of the other kits.

      This is the third kit I built from Music Makers and I was disappointed in it. The materials and craftsmanship were not up to the level of the other Music Maker kits. The thin sides bent and cracked when clamped and the neck had some dings in it. If you're looking for a "starter" kit, I'd recommend the kantele.
      Hi Bill, Sorry to hear the sides cracked. Let us know if you need replacements.

      This kit is nicely cut and ready to put together, with easy-to-follow instructions! It does need quite a bit of sanding on the front and back body pieces, though. The neck and sides are great, but the front and back of the body is a little rough. I also discovered a small place on the head of the instrument that is splintered, so that need to be sanded, as well. I’m taking my time before stringing this instrument, and oiling before staining and finishing, as I’d hate for the body to end up splitting from being too dry. Overall, I’d still recommend this kit. I can’t wait to finish it!

      I am quite pleased with the kit. Parts were cut well and fit together well. Will definitely be buying other products.

      Hi Guys and Gals,and good day from Australia. I have received my Strumbly kit and other bits in good order and in very good time,and I am very pleased with my purchases and eagerly await my second order of a Psalmodikon and bowed Psaltery. You can also expect an order of a chord harp kit very soon. I have recently retired and although I have not played any instruments except a harmonica, badly I should add. Anyhoo I have always liked folk music and I am keen to play a few traditional songs for my own and hopefully my families enjoyment. You people look like you really enjoy your work and I like the fact there is no hard sell attitude to your site. I have been telling all and sundry about your site so hopefully you might get some more orders from this neck of the woods. Cheers and regards, James [ Jim] Boyd.
