Folkcraft® Northern Cherry Mountain Dulcimer Fingerboard, Nut And Bridge Slots Cut, Frets Installed, 1 1/2” Wide
This strap works perfectly on my dulcimer! It is so well made! I am very pleased.
I used this when I put an extra (6 1/2) fret in my dulcimer. Worked great. This looks like really good fret wire.
I bought this strap for my new dulcimer, but ended up liking the strap so much I got three more - one for each of my dulcimers. It fits me fine (5'5") and looks like it'll fit someone much larger than me, too. Well made, worth the money.
I got one of these deluxe rigid dulcimer cases with my Folkcraft Custom Mountain Dulcimer. It is the best protection you can get for your dulcimer. Not only does it have thick padding, but it also has rigid panels sewn into the sides. top and bottom (hence the name of the case). The dulcimer fits snugly into the case. The design allows for different ways to carry it, whether by the side handle or over the shoulder. The embroidery done on the case, the Folkcraft logo and my name, are top notch. A beautifully designed and sewn case that beats anything for protection of your prized dulcimer.
A quality T-shirt with a nice Folkcraft logo. It will serve me well at dulcimer festivals. Thanks.
I tried one of the other how-to books, but like this one the best. It has songs (good) and tons of technique (better!). Definitely recommended!
It’s way cheaper to buy bulk packs of strings than buying ready made sets. Get exactly the thicknesses you want, too. I buy these, and have my husband install them.
I talked to Richard at two festivals, and then on the phone. Several times. I had him (with his dad) make me a beautiful dulcimer. Walnut body with a red cedar top. Huge warm sound (just like he said). I love the cat sound holes, too. I’ll get another dulcimer (when I save up the money) and get one with dogs! (I love the 25” scale length, by the way!!!)
This is an awesome video. Short, but full of information. I know I can get stuff like this for free on Youtube, but there's a lot to be said for watching something in the living room, on a big television. Great instruction. Thank you, Bing Futch!
One of these days I'll be good enough to justify a wood dulcimer, but for learning chromatic technique this cardboard dulcimer is just fine. It went together in a few hours, and actually has a pretty good tone.
I have three of these straps now. Really heavy leather at the end, so it stays tight on the instrument. Buckles at both ends, so I can take off the strap easily. Best straps I've found - they are wayyyyyy better than the six dollar Amazon straps.
I got my cherry (FSH series) dulcimer a couple of months ago, and LOVE it. It has a bright, clear tone - exactly what I expected from cherry wood. Great for old, traditional songs. Getting one in walnut next!
I've been using these strings, bulk packed, for years. 12 in a bag. Cheap price, highest quality. I use both the ball end and loop end strings.
Carolan is wonderful music, a little challenging, but I love the Irish melodies. This book breaks up melody and harmony so you can play with a partner. The CD was very helpful to me. I recommend if your looking to learn beautiful Irish tunes.
These are amazing hammers! Very comfortable to hold and sturdy. I like the dual option of hitting with wood or leather.
Great angle, very comfortable to play! It is very nice to have a smaller stand for my hammer dulcimer
This case has so many features! I love the D-rings on the outside, it is easy to hook on other small cases or pouches. The back pack straps were an ingenious idea, I like carry it like that most of the time, and the side handle is perfectly placed for balance. Well done Folkcraft!
I bought this for my woodworker uncle and he was thrilled!! Quick, and easy project to do for him, but he couldn't stop raving about the perfect precision and beauty of the wood. Thanks Folkcraft for the amazing quality and care you put into everything you make!
Yay, another one! And just as good as the first! I think I like these songs better in arpeggio, I know some of them strumming, but Dave has arranged them sooo beautifullly here.
This book has made singing christmas carols a whole new experience! We have started a new tradition on Christmas eve and my whole family loves it. Many of the songs are much easier to play than I thought.
Again, Dave has put together another great book! Nice big printing on the pages and very fun tunes! I've always been drawn to the fiddle tunes and now I have the best teaching book for them. Anyone who enjoys the fiddle tunes should make this a priority to own!
I love arpeggios. This book has great exercises for learning the placement of the strings so you may quickly progress to playing the beautiful melodies in this book. I love the teaching style of Dave and am ordering more of his books soon.
I bought this for my 11 year old daughter and she feel in love with the dulcimer. The wonderful thing about this book is that you get to learn a song for every new concept or skill. It created confidence and satisfaction quickly.
This book has amazing depth in the material, on music theory, strum and pick patterns, tunings...everything! I love the downloadable sound files, they really helped me learn. I highly recommend this book!
If you've ever wanted to learn fingerpicking this is the only book you need. It has great exercises for your fingers to get really nimble.
This book is a little challenging but it's so worth it! I don't suggest it for a new player but intermediate and up will have fun. I love the Beatles and it brings me such joy to play and sing them on my dulcimer.
This book is chuck full of great tunes and has wonderfully large print for easy reading on any music stand and playing position. I've seen this book at so many jams and decided to pick one up, no regrets. Such easy and catchy tunes. This will live in my travel case so I will have it wherever I go.
This sweatshirt is wonderfully think and warm! It is my "go to" for cool evenings. Folkcraft shows again their top notch quality.
