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.
I bought this book specifically for four Celtic tunes that are difficult to find. The author has clear, easy to read tabs on the highest quality paper. While I may have only needed the four tunes I’m enjoying all the music contained in the book.
I recently downsized into an apartment and have had to think of creative ways to store/display my possessions. Folkcraft came to my rescue with mounts for my dulcimer and ukelele in my office/ music room.
Beautiful, well made piece of equipment. I’m new and still learning the Dulcimer and the use of my new capo. Delivery was very fast and everything arrived perfectly. I will be ordering again from Folkcraft.
Friendly, knowledgeable, and fast service!
This dulcimer has a clear, bright sound. It is easy to play and blends well with other instruments in a group. The melody, middle, and bass strings are well balanced making it a fun instrument to play.
With the cedar top and mahogany sides and back, this dulcimer has a deep rich tone and long sustain. What a joy to play!
I just bought more Folkcraft strings after trying other brands which did not sound as good to my ear on my Folkcraft dulcimer. They are obviously designed to get the best out of my Hickory Folkcraft dulcimer!
Folkcraft® Rosette, Flowering Sun, Maple, 1 1/2" Diameter
Always , wonderful customer service. Thank You.
I made this without any skills at all. I took my time and it came out very very nice. I would recommend this to anyone. The sound of the dulcimer is very nice too. A fun project and and beautiful instrument!
The plan is understandable and well laid out. I haven't started the build yet but with the plan I feel it will come together quite well.
I was satisfied with the service and products on Folkcraft, and will definitely deal with them again.
I have used the dulcimer nuts and bridges for many years. Good quality and stays in place. Fast shipping and good service.
Excellent I love the music notation also
I am a small custom dulcimer maker. I highly recommend these strings for any dulcimer. 100 percent satisfied
Creates a very snug hole for the anchor pins. The pins can be tapped in and they definitely will not come out without effort. - It would be nice if the exact depth for the hole were marked on the bit.
There are not many books that provide parts for multiple dulcimers and this has some bass line and chord parts that will be handy if some of the players in a group would like a part that is less challenging than the full chord melody.
I like to buy my strings in a Pack Of Twelve so that I can make up strings sets suited to several of my dulcimers that play better with combinations that are not in standard sets. Folkcraft has very fast delivery and great customer assistance.
I had been using a strap I made with a button. The strap was usable, but this is far easier. The quick release buckles are awesome and easier to undo with one hand. I am very happy with the narrow width of this strap. It is very well made.
I like playing the softer side of the dulcimer and she has done such a beautiful job with this book. Love the fingering and the tunes.
Such a simple idea that works so well. It works on my lap or on my dulcimer stand. Packs easily in the case.
If you want to expand the possibilities on your dulcimer, this is an absolute must-have. It is secure and tight and easy to use. You can't go wrong with this.
I have played guitar all my life. I have used many guitar polishes.. then I found this one when I started to play the dulcimer. This, by far, is the best polish I have used. You can't go wrong.
I had Richard and the gang build me one of these amazing instruments. I was amazed at the sound. It is exquisite! The bass is a lot of fun and gives the player a lot of possibilities... or you can simply use some extra drone strings. There is so much you can do with this. I am totally smitten with this instrument. Love it!!!!!
What a nice way to secure your dulcimer and display it at the same time. Easy to install and I feel good knowing that nothing will happen to my prized dulcimers when they are hanging nicely on the wall.
I received my order quickly and was able to finish my build. Thanks

Well made, and I install them myself. I use these on Ukes with chrome tuners.
Excellent and very fast service. I have tried several quick release straps on my dulcimer but the Folkcraft Quick Release strap is the only one that works for me. I love that it is double ended and very easy to use!
I did this already
Customer service was awesome. Ordered my case on Thursday and received it on Saturday. Very high quality materials and craftsmanship. Very satisfied!
I’m a guitar player who recently took up dulcimer at the urging of my aunt. She gave me an amazing Folkcraft dulcimer that belonged to my uncle. After doing some research I chose To restring it with Folkcraft strings. I’ve used a lot of different guitar strings and these are excellent. I won’t put anything else on my dulcimer.
