Love my beautiful FSH Butternut/Cherry Dulcimer!

The instrument is everything I wanted and more. I had very specific set-up requirements due to fairly severe arthritis in my left hand. I need the action as low as possible as well as slightly lighter strings than are standard on a 25” VSL. I’d spoken to several other dulcimer builders in my quest for a dulcimer to meet my needs, and they were all reticent to go outside their usual box to accommodate me. Not Richard! He made sure to set up my dulcimer exactly per my requirements. Not only does it play exactly like I wanted it to (so easily!), its sound it absolutely captivating, clear as bell, with lovely sustain. And it plays in absolutely perfect tune, yay! I’m also impressed with the exquisite attention to detail in the finishing, the outstanding craftsmanship, every aspect perfection. The look of the wood chosen for the instrument takes my breath away! One of the best purchases I’ve ever made.

I love this FSH!

I currently have 2 Custom Folkcraft dulcimers and decided to add this Custom FSH to my stable. I ordered it in all hickory, with a couple custom features that the staff did perfectly. I absolutely love this FSH and am blown away by the sound of this hickory dulcimer. A true gem that will rival my other 2 Folkcraft's. The build quality, beautiful woods, superior tone and awesome playability have made this a perfect dulcimer to own and play.
