Design Your Own Folkcraft® Custom Series Six-String Mountain Dulcimer

Item number 9122265, Regular price $1,345.00

The Folkcraft Custom Series Six-String mountain dulcimer has everything you want in a powerful, rich strumming-oriented dulcimer. Ideal for both chord playing and noter-drone style performance, the three doubled courses of strings will give you power and sustain that just doesn't happen with a three- or four-string dulcimer.

What can you customize? Pretty much anything you imagine - fret patterns, sound holes, body woods, tone woods, and more!

Our six-string dulcimer is based on our Folkcraft Custom Series Mountain Dulcimer, and has our largest body and a 1 1/2" wide fretboard. A flat head is standard, with six enclosed-gear tuners, three on each side of the head. Whether your style of play is contemporary or traditional, this instrument does it all!

Custom dulcimer

I talked to Richard at two festivals, and then on the phone. Several times. I had him (with his dad) make me a beautiful dulcimer. Walnut body with a red cedar top. Huge warm sound (just like he said). I love the cat sound holes, too. I’ll get another dulcimer (when I save up the money) and get one with dogs! (I love the 25” scale length, by the way!!!)

Awesome

My butternut/walnut custom Folkcraft mountain dulcimer is awesome. After much consideration, I picked butternut/walnut for a warm, yet articulate voice. The galax back adds projection nicely. I chose the dolphin sound holes that look great, along with the dolphin inlay on the 5th fret. A beautiful set of woods, I just love it. Thank you.

I recieved my Custom Dulcimer in the mail yesterday and I cant put it down! After alot of research Im so happy with my decision with Folkcraft Instruments. This website was so easy to order exactly what I wanted. I chose Rosewood body and Sitka Spruce top. Its absolutely gorgeous. The sound exceeds my expectations!

WOWZER!!

I ordered my custom dulcimer a couple months ago and received it the other day. I ordered East Indian Rosewood and Western Red Cedar, this dulcimer is truly one of the best sounding dulcimers I own (10 dulcimers in the collection). Jim Ash built this specific instrument and it was beautifully done. I absolutely love all my Folkcraft dulcimers, I will definitely be back and order another one!
