This makes them incredibly easy to play, as there is nothing prohibiting your arms and hands natural range of motion. With the included, old fashioned "church keys", you'll be up and running right out of the box! Guitars players, too, will find them natural and easy to play, as all of your standard strumming techniques can cross over to the Rub Board surface! Dimensions: 18-1/2 inches by 10-1/2 inches - playing area: 10-1/2 inches by 16-1/2 inches.
