I'm a new player and got by for a while without a capo. I ordered a capo and a new set of strings from Folkcraft and I'm glad I did!
Friends of the dulcimer community you’ll be pleased to know the people at Folkcraft and Richard are always a pleasure to do business with. My Folkcraft dulcimer is 20 years old and sounds better than the day I bought it. It’s a beautiful string instrument and I’ve treated it with the care it deserves. A well built dulcimer that I am proud to own. Responsive to mountain music, blues and chamber music. What more could you ask for.
There's something about wood that makes a dulcimer capo more satisfying. These capos are very sturdy and padded in just the right places, they hold tight . . . aand they're made with indigenous hard maple and walnut with a brass turning knob. Folkcraft is definitely the 'go-to' place for everything dulcimer.
Beautiful, well made piece of equipment. I’m new and still learning the Dulcimer and the use of my new capo. Delivery was very fast and everything arrived perfectly. I will be ordering again from Folkcraft.
If you want to expand the possibilities on your dulcimer, this is an absolute must-have. It is secure and tight and easy to use. You can't go wrong with this.
