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.
Melanie Johnston's TablEdit manual helps clear up the mystery of using TablEdit. The manual addressed a lot of the problems I was having using the program.
Great quality strings. Great customer service.
Purchased this Pennywhistle at the recommendation of the instructor of a recent workshop. It is an "upgrade" from a metal pennywhistle...very pleased with the tone and ease of fingering.
I am a beginner and this strap is just what I needed to keep my dulcimer firmly in place !
I did indeed receive my order (and given that it was so close to Christmas),I was greatly impressed in the speed in which I received it. I am pleased with everything in my order but haven't had a chance to check out the actual working of the machine heads.
I love the way Nina Zenetti plays the mountain dulcimer so softly and expressive. I received the Heart's Ease tablature book and immediately turned to a couple of pieces that were familiar to me and loved them. I could not stop playing until I played every piece. Now to perfect them.
I thoroughly enjoyed playing the compilation of Christmas tunes in this book. It suited my advanced beginner level well. Clearly sized print was easily read
As always, the service is great and I am very happy with the products.
I am so please with my Folkroots Dulcimer. It's like playing on a fretboard made of silk and the sound is deep and resonate. I highly recommend Folkcraft Dulcimers. Since I bought this one I have purchased a second one. I am so satisfied.
After chatting with Richard about some difficulties I was having playing my beautiful Folkcraft dulcimer (due to my physical issues, arthritis, etc.) he recommended changing to a lighter gauge of strings which he promptly dropped in the mail. What a difference it made, in my playing and even my wanting to play! After putting the new set of of strings on my dulcimer all of a sudden it became a whole lot more user friendly, easier to play and sounding great. The product is great, but I equally appreciated the customer service and advice. Thanks, Richard!
Product arrived very quickly and was just as ordered.
Such reasonable prices and really good plans. I'm so glad I finally found a good source for guitar plans. I bought five! Thanks and I'll be back! Also...great packaging. Very clean.
A good quality string set. Work well.
