Love this dulcimer. Great workmanship. Lovely wood. Sounds great. Exactly as ordered. Thanks.
It is rare to have a handcrafted instrument, and she is a beauty. Also I would recommend the hard case. It is pricey, but beautifully made, and will protect your dulcimer.
I love my bass dulcimer, such a deep and warm sound. And, thank you for taking the time to answer my many questions. 😊
I now have a FolkRoots dulcimer from all three builders. Howard Rugg, David Marks, and now Richard Ash. Two standards, and a baritone. Saving up for number four, now. Need a bass!
I love my FolkRoots dulcimers. I have an old one made in California by Howard Right, and a new one made in Indiana by Jim Ash. Huge sound on both of them!
