Design Your Own FolkRoots® D Series Mountain Dulcimer

Item Number 9000003

Regular price $895.00 (Plus additional options, if added)
This item ships for free, worldwide.

The FolkRoots D Series mountain dulcimer has our larger body style – 8” wide, 2 1/4” sides, and has a rich, powerful tone. Choose the body (back, sides, head, fretboard) and top woods. Then, choose your head preference, scale length, and sound holes. The FolkRoots D Series dulcimers all have a 1 3/8" wide fretboard.

FolkRoots dulcimers all feature our larger California-style body. This larger body has been a hallmark of the FolkRoots dulcimers since the early 1970s, and this larger body gives these instruments a big, mellow, guitar-like tone quality.  Here's an article that discusses Kentucky style dulcimers versus California style dulcimers.

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 eight to twelve weeks for shipping on your custom-built instrument.

Everything I hoped for!!

Fantastic experience every step along the way. All of my questions were answered quickly and completely. My Folkcraft mountain dulcimer is beautiful and made with skilled craftsmanship. I love how it sounds even though I am a complete beginner. Hoping I can do it justice at some point!

Isn’t she lovely

This dulcimer is beautiful and has a lovely voice. A true work of art. Much thanks to Richard Ash for helping get the perfect string action for me. It’s a joy to play.

New favorite dulcimer

This cedar top/walnut body with Galax back has a clear, beautiful tone! I have a walnut 27” not custom, it is beautiful but I really wanted another 25” for see if playing. Also I now have an 8 1/2 fret for the first time and that is very handy, as I have played with a 1 1/2 for decades. Love my new dulcimer!!

Baritone dulcimer

Ordering the instrument was very easy, and the instrument was completed well within the estimated timeframe. I like the way the instrument looks and sounds, and I’m enjoying getting to know my new dulcimer!
