This dulcimer is absolutely stunning,with a sound to go with it. It has a beautiful rich tone and stays in tune. Very pleased. Can't wait to purchase my next one!!!
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the wood choices, but when it arrived I was stunned at the Incredible workmanship and beauty! I play piano, clarinet, and ukulele, but new to the dulcimer, and feel that is very, very good.
I'm totally happy with my new chromatic mountain dulcimer. It looks and sounds awesome! Richard was a delight to work with and incredibly patient with all of my questions.
Very accommodating craftsmen. Nothing is too much trouble for Richard, the owner, and the finished product is superb in terms of build and tone. I will not be using anyone else in future
I couldn’t be happier. I’m a complete beginner, and Richard Ash patiently introduced me—over the phone!—to this new world. The dulcimer I bought gives me pleasure every day—it is a thing of beauty, a pleasure to hold, and its sound is exactly what I hoped for, rich, warm and mellow. Richard’s care and knowledge and superb craftsmanship suffuse the whole experience of buying a Folkcraft instrument. and creating music.
