Folkcraft® Mountain Dulcimer Hardware Kit, Design Your Own

Item Number 7112361

Regular price $0.00 (Plus additional options, if added)
This item ships for free, anywhere in the USA.

Here's everything you need to build your own mountain dulcimer (everything except the wood parts!). This is one easy-to-buy kit of dulcimer hardware. We've put together a package that includes a set of four tuning machines (tuning gears) enough fret wire for a complete instrument, a set of anchor pins to hold the strings, a set of strings, and two pieces of bridge/nut stock. With Folkcraft dulcimer kits, making your own dulcimer is satisfying, relaxing, and rewarding. With our hardware package, you don't have any reason to delay getting started!

We would recommend the open-gear tuners for use with a scroll head dulcimer, and the closed-gear tuners for use with a flat head dulcimer. The anchor pins we include with our customized dulcimer hardware kits are perfect for use with ball end strings, but you can choose loop end (they sound the same!) if that's what you prefer.

The photograph we show here shows our bone-colored tuners and ball-end strings. We'll be sure to ship whatever tuners, nuts/bridges, and strings that you choose. If you add the dulcimer case to your order, we'll include our dulcimer soft case, item number 2851910 (the same made-in-the-USA case we include with the instruments we build here in the Folkcraft shop).

Great Machine Heads

I bought these to replace some heads that were very stiff and these are great. Very smooth operation, easy to tune with and they stay in tune. I liked these so much the first time I bought them that I bought them for another dulcimer too.

We replaced old wooden pegs with these metal open gear tuners. The replacement process was very easy and the new gears work well. Happy with the purchase and product. SN

Very nice, but I prefer the chrome ones...

The bone colored one are very good, but I prefer the chrome ones. A bit more pricey, but worth it.

Folkcraft Machine Heads

We buy these in bulk, 60 packages at a time. The quality is consistently excellent, and on par with tuners that cost three times as much. We love dealing with Folkcraft!
