Best Seller Strumstick


Most Popular (D-33)

  • The D-33 Strumstick is tuned lower (DAD) than the G-31 (GDG). The D-33 also has a deeper, richer tone than the G models. See and Hear ALL the D-33 Models here . See the What is a Strumstick video if you are new to the Strumstick.

    Spruce is a standard wood for acoustic soundboards and makes a great sounding Strumstick. Our most popular Strumstick is the D-33 with Spruce Top, but we sell many of the Koa, Padouk and Rosewood top/back wood models too. Koa is also a very popular acoustic soundboard wood (many people find it fuller sounding than Spruce). Padouk and Rosewood are a little more bright sounding.

    Each wood used results in a different visual effect; 
    - You'll see a high visual contrast between white Spruce top/Maple back and the red Padouk neck and sides. 
    - The Padouk top and back match the neck and sides and give an all-one-color look.
    - The Koa top/back model is less contrasty than the Spruce, and the koa visually harmonizes well with the Padouk neck and sides.
    - The Rosewood top and back are dark and dramatic, and show high contrast with the neck and body. 

    You can order your Strumstick with a Built-in Electric Pickup (see a pickup demo video here), and we have a cool Magnetic Display Stand available
