took my time in the build over three days. print & pictures could be larger. or the toner/ink replaced in your printer. easy to follow overall. now getting used to having all the notes…
My friend was thrilled with the gift--just not the condition in which it arrived! The carrier demolished the package, but after being contacted about the problem, you promptly shipped another kit via another carrier. Thank you so VERY much for being so kind and prompt about sending the replacement. I have truly sung your praises to my friend and have encouraged her to sign up for your newsletter and to check out the books, etc. that you have available.
This was so much fun that I made another one for a friend. Now that I have one under my belt, the second one was even prettier! The sound is really awesome for a cardboard instrument. I cannot say enough good about this kit and all the dulcimers from Folkcraft. Love them all!
Once I received my cardboard dulcimer, I was afraid I couldn't put it together. However, I decided to start. If I couldn't finish it I would get help. I did it all by myself. I did have trouble installing the frets and some places my strings buzz. Overall, I am very happy with my chromatic dulcimer.
Another reviewer stated he got help from his neighbors to do the fret work. I don't have that neighbor so my fret wires are a mess.
I think the kit should come fretted because I don't have hours to file the hard fret wire down or a neighbor with the right power tool.
After some time on this it's still in the box.....
