Hand made in IN., perfection in protection
Quick delivery. Very happy with this tool.
I have purchased several Folkcraft instruments they are the best.
All arrived as promised with the quality I knew I would receive from Folkcraft.
The non-slip pad works great, just as advertised. Without it, the dulcimer wants to escape with vigorous playing!
This case is perfect for my hourglass dulcimer. Nicely made and the front zippered pocket is nice and big enough to hold my books and tuner. Highly recommend!!!
They look good and fit great. They are lightweight and ideal for summer ware. I recomend these shirts.
Carrying a mountain dulcimer in a hardshell case was awkward and uncomfortable. I was forever swapping arms to relieve the heaviness of the instrument and case. Folkcraft's Deluxe Rigid Dulcimer case slips right on my back and makes carrying the dulcimer is easy. My hands are free for other gear. The front pocket holds my iPad and a plastic tackle box with tuner, noter, pencil, clips, etc.
Don't tell Richard, but I recently accidentally tested the integrity of the case when I left it on the floor when retracting the slide on our motor home. I heard wood breaking but couldn't immediately tell where it was coming from. When I realized what had happened, I imagined my precious instrument splintered. Fortunately, the case completely did its job: The dulcimer was unharmed. Unfortunately, one of the plywood sides was broken in two places. I learned an expensive lesson, but the cost of a new case was a fraction of the cost to replace the dulcimer.
My experience in ordering the new case could not have been better. I ordered it late one evening and the new case shipped the next morning, arriving in about a week.
I'm a believer in FolkCraft, my instrument, and this case. Thanks!
Some very fun tunes to add a little spice to my repertoire!
If you need bass strings this is the way to go!
quality pins, service. use these to attach loop ends. OK when using ball ends with ball removed after rounding loop with a tapered punch
My customer was ecstatic with the finished result and the wood Folkcraft was what made the instrument special.
You can be assured the products you purchase from Folkcraft will be what you expect, a quality product. I’ve always gotten personalized service and been completely satisfied with my purchases.
Fast and dependable.
I own and play five different Folkcraft dulcimers and I prefer this one over all others. The preamp is tremendous because it can shape so many different sounds. I find a three stringer easier to to play because hard fingerings are easily hit. It sounds terrific too. It really sings. The double back really makes a difference. I recommend all Folkcraft products. Great helpful friendly service too.
Wonderful product, fast delivery and came straight and not bent or kinked. well packaged.
Something Else To Blame on Covid-19...
I never got to use my lovely Folkcraft strings. I left my dulcimer at a Local music shop to restring. The overwhelmed and terribly back-logged music tech didn’t read instructions on ticket and not only did not use the strings I supplied but also added the 4th string back which I had removed two years ago when I 1st started playing. However, the dulcimer had already been in the shop for 2 weeks and I liked the new sound so took as is.
Clear and straightforward web site.
Placed the order online.
Order arrived in a timely manner.
Items matched order.
I'm very satisfied :)
I have just received this beautiful instrument - the full and rich sound is fascinating and impressing and makes you want to play...and play...and play - it's so much fun and enjoyment!
I'm a new player and got by for a while without a capo. I ordered a capo and a new set of strings from Folkcraft and I'm glad I did!
Unfortunately, I am not a very accomplished musician, so I can't honestly say how good these picks are. They are easy to hold on to, and the service was great.
I've been building hammered dulcimers for
over 40 years, but somehow NEVER heard of delrin rod until a few weeks ago? I've always lived in fairly remote areas, and am a bit of a "Luddite", so not much access to the internet. Anyway, when I first read about delrin rod, I was convinced I had to use it on my new dulcimers. Unfortunately, all of my searches ended in frustration. Several industrial suppliers insisted I must buy 1,000 feet to place on order (that's a lot of delrin rod!). So, when I accidently stumbled (metaphorically) onto "Folkcraft Instruments, I was delighted that they offer small quantities of delrin rod (both white and black) at very reasonable prices. I placed my order, it arrived in less than a week, and boom, I will never use brass road on my instruments again! If I could find an upload link I'd send an image of my latest dulcimer, with white delrin rod on ebony side bridges, and treble and bass bridges with alternating white and black delrin rod. Thanks Folkcraft Instruments! You've given an old guy's dulcimers a new and modern look!
I am very happy with this kit so far. Everything is lazer cut and fits very well together. I can not wait to string up the dulcimer I am building to try these hammers out. they are a very good value for everything you get.
I love the finish on these pins. I like the fact that it is different then just silver. Plan to keep buying so long as Folkcraft keeps selling them.
I thought the book was great. Mostly my fault. I stick to DAD tuning and much of the material was for various other tunings. Therefore it’s use for me was limited.
