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 fret boards I get from Folkcraft are always the finest wood and they never warp!
Great having different thicknesses to choose from. Picks do not slip between fingers & I feel more relaxed playing tenor banjo with these.
Awesome. Wonderful to play. Came in great condition
Strings arrived promptly and well packaged to prevent water damage from the rain that fell that day. Beautiful strings that tuned up well. I'm sure I'll buy more.
I have order from them a long time an as always i have got great Supplies from the Folkcraft company an i ordered one of the custom Dulcimers from FolkCraft that is a great Dulcimer sounds great thanks to them from Randys Dulcimer Shop in Steele Ky the Gold Keys are a great Dulcimer Keys works great on my Dulcimers and looks great
Great kit and materials. Instruction could use some actual pictures of the steps
Everything I expected, wide enough to be comfortable and easy to attach to instrument. I am very pleased with this product as well as the pins I ordered that attached to my dulcimer. They work well together.
I picked up a partially assembled Folkcraft dulcimer kit. Unfortunately, it had limited paperwork. Folkcraft had this full size plan available. It has all the information I need to correct issues and build this box of wood into the fine instrument it was meant to be. This should be a very nice winter project. The next project will be to learn to play it.
Once I received my cardboard dulcimer, I was afraid I couldn't put it together. However, I decided to start. If I couldn't finish it I would get help. I did it all by myself. I did have trouble installing the frets and some places my strings buzz. Overall, I am very happy with my chromatic dulcimer.
Prompt and products just as viewed on web site!
I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful capo I bought from you recently for my dulcimer. It is quite lovely compared to my old black one which doesn't work well anymore. Not only does this one work very well...every string and all the notes sound so sweet...but it is a beautiful thing in it's own right, and looks lovely on the aged wood of my dulcimer. Thank you for carrying this great product!
All best, Khristine
I have put these new strings on my four string dulcimer. They were easy to install and the sound is great!
This is a fun book with lots of capo songs for different sounds. I like the way it's arranged. I am fairly new but the tab isn't just cords throughout, which can sound boring. It has more detailed combinations of strings that sound really nice. Recommended.
The book is wonderful, with lots of songs I know and am anxious to start playing. Great job. I would highly recommend this book.
