 Folkcraft Cardboard Dulcimer Kit
 
Our cardboard (corrugated paper) dulcimer kit is just what you've been trying to find! All of the paper parts are cut out, and ready to glue. The fingerboard made of solid hickory, and is slotted for nut, bridge, and frets, and also has holes for both mounting and winding the machine heads.
 
Detailed instructions are provided, and this kit should take you about two hours to build. For the "Minimal Tools Required" kit, you'll need to provide the following tools: a small hammer (for tapping in the frets and anchor pins); a drill with #49 bit (for drilling the holes for the anchor pins and machine head screws); a small Phillips head screwdriver (for installing the machine heads); a piece of sandpaper, either 120 grit or 220 grit (for fitting the nut and bridge pieces); a pair of wire cutters (for trimming the frets and cutting the strings to length); and a flat file (for finishing the ends of the frets). You'll also need to provide some white or yellow glue (for assembling the cardboard parts).
 
People ask us how our cardboard dulcimers sound. They are the best cardboard dulcimers we've ever heard. The Folkcraft cardboard dulcimers have a sweet mellow sound. They don't have the volume of a cherry or walnut dulcimer, though. If you want a loud instrument, choose something in solid wood.
 
For the "No Tools Required" kit, the fingerboard will already have the frets, machine heads and anchor pins installed.
 
Our cardboard dulcimer kit is also available fully assembled!

When people think of heirloom-quality instruments, they think of Folkcraft. Here's why: Our instruments are handmade in the United States of America, not in a cheap overseas factory. Our instruments are crafted one at a time, not on an assembly line. Our instruments are made of solid woods, not out of plywood.
 
Folkcraft instruments are made with pride and tradition, using the same methods as our founders used in 1968. Folkcraft Instruments is a family business, with two generations of luthiers putting their skill and experience into every instrument they create.
