Zither Heaven's Rock-it Stick is a cross between a dulcimer and a guitar. The strings are tuned to D-A-D. Anyone who picks up one of these instruments can make a great sound right away without knowing music. It is designed to promote interest in music for children and beginners, while experienced musicians can play familiar tunes without hesitation. The Rock-it Stick features a 23-inch vibrating string length. The neck is made from sustainable native North American solid cherry with nylon frets and steel strings. Zither pins are used for the tuning keys. The body is made from sustainable native North American solid black walnut with a Baltic birch back. Launch date: February 2011.
