Tuning, Maintenance, and Playing

Tuning

The Strumpet is tuned G-D-G.    You can purchase a tuning device, like the Snark, from Amazon or your local music store.  You can also find many free guitar tuning apps for smartphones that will work just fine.

Bridge Placement

The bridge is set on your Strumpet in a specific location to provide proper intonation.

If you should ever move it accidentally, or if you should want to change strings at some point, we have made some light marks to show where the bridge should be located.   The pressure of the strings holds it in place–it is not glued down.
