The Seagull Merlin Natural Spruce SG is an amazing little instrument ukulele type thing inspired by the Dulcimer. Its tuned DADD and to a major scale so it's really hard to play it badly... There is one grey area although we term this dissonant. Fun, compact and easy to play, this portable 4 string diatonic instrument is designed to introduce people of all ages and abilities to music.
Easy to Play
Strongly inspired by the classic Appalachian Dulcimer, the Merlin Ukulele features diatonic frets, with the intervals following the notes of the major scale, rather than the usual chromatic fretting. This simple fret pattern makes the Merlin an exceptionally fun and easy instrument to learn for all players.
The ukulele features a solid Spruce top and 3 piece Rock Maple body, giving it a rich and vibrant tone with excellent projection. It also features a ''moustache'' style Tusq® bridge and compensated Tusq® saddle for improved clarity and sustain, along with vintage-style open geared tuners and a Satin Oil finish.
Seagull has been building guitars for over 30 years with a complete commitment to manufacturing and detail. The workforce is all employed locally and the company ethics are to be admired. All timbers are used from the reclaimed woods initiatives and Seagull work closely with the replanting programme.
