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.
Order was complete and came in the mail as ordered.
This is a great collection of music. Susan Trump is a great teacher. This book is well worth getting.
Iordereda Seton strings for my mountain dulcimer and by mistake I ordered them for a baritone dulcimer. So I called Folkcraft to order a replacement set. To my surprise, she sent the order out and asked me to return the wrong set. Quite surprised actually. I think this is just another thing that makes Richard and Folkcraft so great. He and his staff really care!
A nice kit with good instructions. I am just starting the build with my grandson. The kit came on time (a day or two from order date). Our fist step was to verify the contents which were exactly as stated. My grandson was intrigued by the two type of wood Cherry with sound board of Western Redwood Cedar. We talked about finishing with tung oil or lacquer. He choose the oil. Next step is to get him his first tool box and the needed items identified in the instructions. Instructions Make it easy to do the build and share a passion with my grandson.
These are a great timesaver and very durable. Accurate slot spacing and great finished appearance.
I had been looking for some time for a book dedicated to the 1+ fret. After finding out from Aaron he had written one and Folkcraft had it there was no question what book was to be added to my Dulcimer book library. The information provided and progression of work has given me new understanding of the fret and how it adds to additional chord choices and sounds I’ve been looking for. Beginners to advanced players will benefit from the content here. This book is a keeper!
Thanks. Arrived on time and works real fine. Well made.
Just arrived, ready for my Bass to arrive. The audio files really sold it for me. The book looks to be straight forward as the sample pages showed. I’ll report back more after I get to dig into it.
As always, Richard was helpful and sent me exactly what I needed to change a 6-string dulcimer to a 3 string bass. It sounds wonderful, and adds a new texture to our group.
Folkcraft strings are the best I've found.
Judy House's Mountain Dulcimer book is full of songs you just need to have. It is a great bunch of songs.
These rods were perfect for my intended use! They are light and flexible, yet strong, and are easy to cut and drill and otherwise work with. I'm in Hawaii but shipping was quick and I got them in short order. Thank you, Folkcraft!
Easy to read and play. I will be ready for the next and future Holiday seasons
I didn’t even think about this until I saw in catalog - of course having them on hand for when it happens is NOW A NO-BRAINER
I bought some strings for my Dulcimer which was handcrafted from cherry wood by Warren May in Berea Kentucky. I accidentally broke the original strings trying to tune the dulcimer. I bought a set of strings off Amazon, but decided to look further after I received them. Then I found Folkcraft, so ordered strings and fingerboard lubricant. The quality was immediately obvious when I compared Folkcraft with Amazon. So glad I found you. Now I can produce the sweet sound of my dulcimer once more. Quality strings for a quality dulcimer
