The Folkcraft Custom Series 6-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 on a 6-string dulcimer instrument? Pretty much anything you imagine - fret patterns, sound holes, body woods, tone woods, and more!

Our 6-string dulcimer instrument 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!

Folkcraft Six-String Custom Series dulcimers are available in both a traditional Kentucky body and in a more contemporary California body. The Kentucky body creates a quieter, more subdued tone, and the California body offers a louder, more mellow, more guitar-like tone quality. More information can be found here.

Each of our handmade dulcimers comes with our best soft carrying case, made here in the Folkcraft workshop. Our rigid case, which offers more protection, is available for an upcharge. Strap buttons are also included.

There are a lot of options to choose when designing an instrument for us to make for you. We have a reference/resource page here, and you're always welcome to contact us for help and guidance in making great choices.

Please allow eight to twelve weeks for shipping on your custom-built instrument.

Superb

This is the most beautiful instrument. The sound is so much better than the one I was using. That old one is a toy compared to my Folkcraft.

I’m in love.

My new rosewood body and spruce top dulcimer is a dream. While it was a bass when I saw it hanging on the wall at the factory, Richard took it into the shop, changed the nut and the bridge, restrung it and made it the instrument I’ve been lusting for.
Given that my first two dulcimers were purchased at a flea market and a pawn shop, owning a finely crafted work of art has transported me to another world.
Thanks to all at Fookcraft to the time they took helping me get the perfect instrument for me.

Custom dulcimer

I don’t think you can purchase a better, clearer dulcimer than a Folkcraft mountain dulcimer.
I have played for many years, always searching for the perfect instrument for me, and Folkcraft is it! “Nobody does it better”.
