Awesome. Wonderful to play. Came in great condition
My bass dulcimer arrived today and I am delighted with its sound and looks. The Eastern red cedar I chose turned out wonderfully. The sound is deep and rich.
I feel so blessed to have this beautiful cherry top and cherry body Folkroots D series mountain dulcimer! I am just a beginner but the difference between it and my student dulcimer is like night and day! It is beautiful and brings me so much joy!
I wanted to order a MAXDAD chromatic, so I ordered one a couple of months back -- customer service was amazing and cleared up any and all issues that arose during its building and shipping. The instrument arrived at the beginning of this month, and I would say that the instrument is absolutely splendid and sounds loud and sweet. I would definitely buy again if I ever needed another one!
Just got to pick my wood, eastern red cedar, for my dream dulcimer. The actual piece!!! I am so excited to see it on the completed instrument. What a great service.
