Design Your Own Folkcraft® Custom Series Mountain Dulcimer

Item Number 9000004

Regular price $1,595.00 (Plus additional options, if added)
This item ships for free, worldwide.

The Folkcraft Custom Series mountain dulcimer has everything you might possibly want in a handcrafted instrument. Our largest body (8” wide at the lower bout, 2 1/4” deep), your choice of both domestic and exotic woods, and much, much more - from scale length to sound holes. Go crazy and configure YOUR ideal dulcimer!

Folkcraft Custom Series dulcimers are available in both a traditional Kentucky body and in a more contemporary California body. The Kentucky body creates a quieter, more subdued tone, and the California body offers a louder, more mellow, more guitar-like tone quality. More information can be found here.

Each of our handmade dulcimers comes with our best soft carrying case, made here in the Folkcraft workshop. Our rigid case, which offers more protection, is available for an upcharge. Strap buttons are also included.

There are a lot of options to choose when designing an instrument for us to make for you. We have a reference/resource page here, and you're always welcome to contact us for help and guidance in making great choices.

Please allow us three to four months for shipping on your custom-built instrument.

I love my dulcimer

My Folkcraft dulcimer not only sounds absolutely beautiful but is also just gorgeous to behold. I’m not a great player as yet, though I will say that I’ve never heard “Oh Susanna” sound quite so amazing in my entire life. I am 100% thrilled with it and look forward to getting better and better with this exquisite instrument on my lap.

Folkcraft® Custom Series Dulcimer, Walnut Body/Spruce Top.

I've been playing mountain dulcimer for a few years but still very much a beginner. This dulcimer is perfect for me, my hands and my abilities yet one I believe will allow me to progress as a player. Thanks Richard for your time and recommendations when I was at the shop! The tone is amazing.

Absolutely incredible Craftsmanship

I ordered a custom series dulcimer with custom sound holes and a few other customisable options and couldn't be more impressed with the attention to detail and clear passion in the work of Richard and the guys over at Folkcraft. They are clearly experts in their field and kept me up to date with how my dulcimer was coming along during the months, which is always nice. Couldn't be happier with it. The smell of the wood is amazing as well :)

Unsurpassed Quality

My first dulcimer in 2006 was a Folkcraft. Throughout the years I have purchased dulcimers from other companies, as well as ones produced by local luthiers. I keep coming back to Folkcraft because the sound quality, exemplary craftsmanship, and physical beauty of the instruments are unsurpassed.

Very cool

This rocks but I was thinking of a 10 String MaxDAD which has 5 pairs of strings & it would certainly have a nice Jangle. I would call it the MaxDAD X, the X is the Roman Numeral for 10.
