Well made and it made a big difference in stabilizing the instrument on my lap. I can concentrate on learning to play better instead of spending effort keeping the dulcimer in position. Thank you. I would like to buy the ends only so that I could use the strap on another dulcimer at times.
Called for help as I knew nothing about dulcimers. Staff quickly explained the best type of string for my dulcimer. Thanks
I really like and appreciate the approach Aaron takes in his instructional books. Starting off with a basic step, adding a layer at a time until you have a new tool to enhance your dulcimer playing. This book guides you through techniques to acquire the skills at playing accompaniment. I look forward to learning these skills as I have long wanted to play accompaniment with others and in jams.
First, I’ll admit a shortage of experience as a “maker”. I was excited to try out my skills and wanted to complete the kit without asking for help from my hubby. That said, it took me much longer than the suggested 2 hours, especially with drying time for glue. My final product looks nice but the sound is disappointing.
Fun way to spice up fiddle tunes
have not get the item yet so .......
Keeps your dulcimer from sliding around or falling off your lap and I love the Quick-Release ends!
I ordered and received a variety of items from you on two separate occasions all of which came very quickly from America to my little house in the UK
None of it has been fitted yet as I am not yet ready, but the stuff is very high quality and looks a treat when just placed in position.
Unfortunately the import duties added quite a lot to the price of these beautiful artefacts and it will probably be infrequent . It is a shame but as I am only doing my dulcimer building for fun I need to keep the costs down. However I shall make my decision as I progress. It is impossible to get dulcimer parts in the UK as it is a rarely seen instrument.
Keep up the good work Folkcraft!
Arrived very quickly, all the way to Japan. Haven't used the strings yet, Japanese summers aren't kind on strings so I'll wait til the autumn. Book is great, quite a few tunes I've learnt on my other instrument, the flute, so I'm having a lot of fun learning them from another angle.
The selection of songs will ensure that with your baritone dulcimer you will be able to play in jam sessions. The book contains a great section on music theory and has a extensive set of chord charts for AEa tuning. It is evident that a lot of thought and work went into this book.
Enjoy Civil War music very much, and look forward to learning to play them on my dulcimer.
We sell Aaron's tab books and we do recommend them highly. With the number of books he has authored, one can cover just about all aspects of dulcimer playing. Aaron is one of the more accomplished and talented players and his books reflect that knowledge and ability.
Just what I was looking for. A hard to find product packaged in a manageable size.
This book was recommended by my dulcimer teacher and it is as advertised. Some fairly well known tunes, of varying speed with embellishments added. I have found the book to be very useful as I hone my finger picking skills and learn embellishments.
The hymns in this collection took me back to my early days in many small country churches. This will be a collection that I will enjoy for a long time to come. I will note that the song listing in the product description differs by six songs from what is in the actual book. The product description lists Beautiful Star of Bethlehem, Crying Holy, O' Come Angel Band, Old Gospel Ship, This World Is Not My Home, and Where The Roses Never Fade but those songs do not appear in the second edition of the book that I received. Instead of those six songs, the following were in my book Down By The Riverside, Go Tell it on the Mountain, It is Well With My Soul, My Shepherd Will Supply My Need, Just As I Am, and All People That On Earth Do Well. Still it is a good collection of hymns that I will be enjoying as I learn to play these favorites on the mountain dulcimer.
I’m a long time musician but new to the dulcimer. I love O’Carolan music and very much enjoyed this book!
Great customer service. Answered all my questions in a timely manner. Made recommendations. Excellent products. Highly recommend!
Solid material allows me to make nut or bridge to the height and width that fits my dulcimer fret board. I am glad Folkcraft had this option. Thank you again
Learned a lot from this DVD 👍
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
Great arrangements and a good selection of songs. This book is very enjoyable with the dulcimer.
Fun & Challenging
Well Made & works perfectly!
