I love my new dulcimer! The sound is excellent. I went with a shorter board, which helps a lot since I am short and have smaller hands. The whole instrument is lighter and easier to manage than what I had been playing. Also, Folkcraft has so many choices for resonance designs to personalize your instrument, and I love the brontosaurus engraved on mine. Have been playing it most every day for a few weeks now and am very happy with how it came out.
Awesome. Sounds great
First, Richard was very helpful when I first inquired trying to decide on a dulcimer. He was very generous with his time really taking time to explain things to me and make sure i had enough information to select a dulcimer for my tastes and needs. I ordered a custom made walnut body, western red cedar top 27” VSL. I arrived a little over 4 weeks later, just as Richard described. I have hardly put it down and have not put it in its case since it arrived as I am loving playing it. At first the sound was brighter than I had expected but after a couple weeks it has really mellowed out. I love this instrument, it is well made and beautiful to look at and play. Thank you Folkcraft!
Excellent quality!! Lovely wood front and back. Love the tone. Richard answered all my questions prior to my purchase. Was well packaged and arrived the third day after I placed the order. Thank you Folkcraft!!
