I bought an entire set of Dulcimer strings for my new hammered dulcimer. Quality was excellent and the service was excellent as well. I have only good things to say about my experience with Folkcraft
Good quality, excellent service and fast shipping. I’m most satisfied.
Always enjoy Stephen Seifert and alternative ways to play the same songs in a jam session- brings more fun to the mix.
I love my new dulcimer and capo
I use them every day
I ordered this piece from my mini ipad, and the print was too small for me to read that I needed a 1+ fret on my dulcimer. That was not the fault of the arranger, but it was a lesson to me to read more carefully. If would probably be beautiful, if I could play it.
A significant upgrade on the bow that came with my bowed psaltery I bought on another site.
This dulcimer bag is a perfect fit and is sturdy enough to protect my dulcimer. Glad I bought it!
I usually use the 1" strap (which I prefer), but the 2" strap is also very nice. For some heavier, more-substantial dulcimers, this one might be better than the 1" strap. Either way, this is the only strap I ever use anymore.
THIS WAS EASY AND QUICK IN AN OVERLEY COMPLICATED WORLD, GREAT TO FIND RELIABLE SOURCES. tHANK YOU
So happy to receive this custom dulcimer with chromatic fretboard and a built-in pick up. I don't have an amp so I haven't tried the pick up yet, but even without an amp, the sound carries well. I am really enjoying the touch and playability of this dulcimer. The tone is wonderful - it just rings on and on and on. And the chromatic fretboard is helping me learn music and I'm able to play more keys and songs (so much easier on 3 strings than on a guitar!). I am also really pleased with the beauty of the sound hole I picked (dragonfly).
I am thoroughly happy with this beautiful dulcimer. It was worth waiting for one customized just for me. Looking forward to trying out the pick up.
We purchased a used, hand made dulcimer at an estate sale. Never had a dulcimer before. It was a four-stringed instrument, but was missing one string. Purchased the four string replacement set and the instrument sounds wonderful. Thank you for wonderful strings, at an affordable price and rapid delivery. Cheers!

This is actually my first purchase from Folkcraft, and what an INCREDIBLE instrument this is!! The craftsmanship is absolutely beautiful, and I have to say that this is definitely the nicest dulcimer I have ever owned! I was interested in the MAXDAD when I saw Richard do a video of one he had recently made, and I LOVED the sound of it, and I really liked the idea of having a couple extra strings on it to give the instrument more bass. When plugged in, this thing has amazing sound, and I’m SO happy with it! The MAXDAD is the perfect instrument for me, and I highly recommend it!
Well made , good quality and the finish us great.
great price for a pack of 6
Easy to hold and they don't cause unwanted noise. I recomend these picks.
Strings are very good. I’ve begun buying multiple sets just to have extras on hand.
Aaron explains how to take a simple melody and add layers of complexity to produce variation, while also introducing the higher fretboard positions. This book took my playing to a new level; this was for me a study in melody dynamics.
I love my new dulcimer! The sound is excellent. I went with a shorter board, which helps a lot since I am short and have smaller hands. The whole instrument is lighter and easier to manage than what I had been playing. Also, Folkcraft has so many choices for resonance designs to personalize your instrument, and I love the brontosaurus engraved on mine. Have been playing it most every day for a few weeks now and am very happy with how it came out.
Folkcraft® Quick-Release 1" Wide Dulcimer/Ukulele Strap, Brown
Exactly what i wanted
I'm always satisfied when dealing with Folkcraft!
It works better than any other that I've used.
Really nice strings that I order time after time. Good place to get other supplies as well.
This kit was a gift from my husband. I have been curious about this type of dulcimer for awhile, egged on by what I saw that Sam Edelston (and others) could do with one when I watched his videos. I felt this would be a low cost way to get my feet wet and expand my learning the kinds of songs that I can't do on my other MDs. Have all the notes and expanded chord possibilities? Yes, I like this. And, it will kick my butt into gear to focus and learn chord theory more deeply.
I must admit I did not do all the assembly work. Getting help locally from some other neighbors did not work out. Not having proper tools, bits, files, or workspace, I ended up enlisting Richard's help finishing the fretboard. It was worth the extra expense. I finally finished assembling the rest of it this past weekend and I am pleased with the end results and the sound of it. The directions were okay after reading through them a few times; the photos a bit small and blurry to see but I figured it out. I look forward to learning more music with this instrument. Who knows, I may invest in another better chromatic dulcimer in the future if I take to it well. Thanks, Folkcraft, Richard, for making this possible.
