Strumstick

Strumstick by Versilian Studios. What has only three strings and has a sound somewhere between a banjo and a guitar? No, I’m not talking about student violins from China, I’m talking about the McNally Strumstick, or more specifically the Diatonic D Grand, our victim today.

We’ve recorded just about ‘all she wrote’ on this instrument- picked, plucked, bowed, and more, with sampled releases, easy string selection via modwheel, two mic positions, and at up to 3 velocities and 4 round robins- 1,700 samples and 20 articulations in all.

Behind the Scenes

Simple yet versatile

Despite only having three strings, our strumstick is surprisingly versatile. Outfitted with several different types of strings, the instrument has a wide range of timbres.

Using the modwheel, you can choose which string to give priority, 1, 2, or 3, each bringing a range of characteristic differences to the tone.

In addition, extensive sampling of releases gives the instrument a very realistic response and feel while playing.
