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.
The products worked great. I received the products very timely! Highly recommend.
Good for COVID 19 together time in 2020.
Great tool for creating tablaturesof loved songs.
Greatly reduced pick slap of the strings.
A very good book. Our dulcimer group uses it for practicing.
My order hasn't been mailed yet regardless of the time.
Great Book by Dave Haas! A master of smooth playing melodies and this book teaches you all the techniques to make joyful and beautiful music on the Mountain Dulcimer.
I'm still waiting to receive it in the mail. Sorry can't rate what I've not seen.
I first learned to play on a Folkcraft! Getting my 2nd ever Folkcraft in 2020 was an excellent experience. Richard was extremely helpful and customer service is second to none here. The instrument itself is quality through and through. Touching this beauty it’s obvious the handmade workmanship, detail, and extras that went into my instrument. I’ve since put in an order on a 2nd Folkcraft dulcimer and will (next year) order a custom from them. I’m happy to say that Folkcraft will be my go to instruments from now on. -Mandy

This is an excellent book for beginners after they have finished the very beg book. I move all of my students to this book next.

Tuners were perfect. Looking forward to dealing with you again as I still have a ukulele and autoharp to finish.
I am considering ordering again soon, I have sent your company info to similar friends hoping they will order you as well.
Excellent service and quick international delivery despite Covid shutdowns. The quick release strap makes it so much easier to just start playing. No more messing around getting your baby anchored!
Folkcraft provided exceptional service and fast shipping. The chromatic FolkRoots® H Series Dulcimer, Walnut Body, Butternut Top w/ pickup installation has exceptional sound and quality. Extremely happy with my purchase!
I love these straps! They are the best anywhere around. They save the wear and tear on the leather that attaches to the strap buttons decreasing the risk of the strap slipping off possibly causing you to drop you dulcimer. The folks at Folkcraft are great to work with, they are there to assist with ant situation or answer any question you may have. They fill your orders in record time as well.
Fits and looks great!
The tone of this dulcimer is so warm and the finish is just beautiful.
This is an excellent book and easy to follow and play. I teach dulcimer and after they get out of the beginner book I move them to either this one or Steve's traditional jamming book. More people I have found in Cinti know the gospels songs more than the traditional songs so they usually pick the gospel book first to learn. Great for the money!

Looks great on the wall, easy to install and the hangers are interchangeable
I bought a spare set during quarantune, but haven't had a chance to change out the first set. They still sound just fine.
Love these strings, will buy more.
Needs strings for my “other” Dulcimers. I knows I could rely on Folkcraft to come through! Always have what I need and top quality. If you have any question just ask Rich. He’s always helpful!
Simple, easy to use, well made.
