Folkcraft Instruments has been crafting handmade mountain dulcimers since 1968. We've been providing the best dulcimers, plus the dulcimer cases, tab books, dulcimer string sets, and everything else a mountain dulcimer player needs. We even provide dulcimer parts - machine heads and wood parts - for builders of all skill levels. We're happy to build a custom mountain dulcimer for you, make you a custom instrument case, or make you a custom string set. All of our dulcimers are handmade in the USA.
My Bass Dulcimer is being built so I can not rate this book at this time.
I also ordered ball end Bass Dulcimer strings and Loop end Baritone Dulcimer strings. You sent the incorrect strings for the Baritone Dulcimer. What you sent were loop end Bass dulcimer strings. I can use them on my new Bass Dulcimer. I seem to have a issue when I order from your company.
I have 3 dulcimers from Folkcraft and ordering new strings couldn't have been easier. Richard knew exactly what I need - 3 string set with ball ends for each one Shipping was fast.
This dulcimer is absolutely stunning,with a sound to go with it. It has a beautiful rich tone and stays in tune. Very pleased. Can't wait to purchase my next one!!!
nice big book , will last a long time

As a new dulcimer player, I found many capo's on the market. After doing a comparison based on quality, design, and customer reviews, I found the Folkcraft capo lead the pack in all three categories. After almost a month of use, I do not regret the purchase. Thank you Folkcraft!
I absolutely love this package. I have seen Lorinda perform in person for years at the Dulcimer Festival in Kentucky , but I have never been able to get off work to attend classes. Now I can learn from her right in my own living room. Thank you for putting this package together Follcraft and Lorinda.
The walnut butternut combination gives this dulcimer a gorgeous mellow tone that simply rings as I play. I was concerned that it would be awkward to adjust to playing the double but it is actually very easy. Being able to switch back and forth between the two instruments adds a lot to performing with a small group or in duets. I am tall so it fits very comfortably on my lap. I haven't played my other two dulcimers since I purchased it and it has quickly become my favorite!
Nice set of drawings. Very detailed
very well drawn plans. just received all of my hardware and looking forward to building it now.
Just what I needed, to begin a new guitar build.
This wooden capo fits nicely across the fretboard holding all strings firmly allowing the dulcimer player to play in different keys. Cork on the inside of the capo prevents damage to the sides of the fretboard. A nice product.
The string winder is interesting. Wasn't sure about it but reviews were good and it was cheap. What can I say. Actually, it is a great aid in putting on new strings. Will see how long the plastic lasts but it's first use has been successful and definitely reduces the time necessary to change a set of strings.
my first one got wet and they were so kind
and sent me another book free thanks
