Ordering the instrument was very easy, and the instrument was completed well within the estimated timeframe. I like the way the instrument looks and sounds, and I’m enjoying getting to know my new dulcimer!
My Folkcraft dulcimer is not only a magnificently sounding instrument but a work of art.
Richard Ash is a genius and the Folkcraft staff is responsive and competent.
I would recommend Folkcraft to anyone who values the majesty of sound, ease of playability, and spectacular to the eye.
Thank you for the beautiful dulcimer. It is my second dulcimer. I was reluctant to "treat" myself to a second instrument but finally decided to spoil myself and to get a Folkcraft. It sounds fantastic and I wanted the added frets to increase my range. My only disappointment was I added in the comment section on the order form that I requested a 2nd melody string be added and that did not happen.
After many months playing an inexpensive beginner’s dulcimer I finally was able to purchase this beauty. It’s a FolkRoots with cherry body and cherry top. It sounds great, feels great, and is such a joy to play. It puts my old learner instrument to shame. (I’ll keep the old one for sentimental reasons because it’s the one that got me hooked.) I look forward to many years of enjoyment playing my new friend.
My first ever dulcimer was a FolkRoots D Series. It was back in the day when the VSL was only 29". I loved its tone, but not the long VSL, so I sold it. Fast forward a few years and along comes Richard, who gives us our choice on VSL. Perfect! Now, you can have the great tone of D Series (big and warm) with the shorter VSL for those of us who play chord/melody.
