Folkcraft provided exceptional service and fast shipping. The chromatic FolkRoots® H Series Dulcimer, Walnut Body, Butternut Top w/ pickup installation has exceptional sound and quality. Extremely happy with my purchase!
The tone of this dulcimer is so warm and the finish is just beautiful.
My custom dulcimer was well made. However, it differed from what I ordered in a single detail. The fretboard was a 1/4" too narrow. Folkcraft immediately started building a new one, and even let me make modifications in the 2nd time around. Spectacular service! I love working with Folkcraft!
I have ordered from Folkcraft's semicustom feature before, this one may be the best yet. The mahogany is true to tone and the rest is exactly as I ordered. Delighted and will certainly return next time I wish to buy another dulcimer.
