To complement my Standard Folkcraft Custom Mountain Dulcimer, I ordered and received a Baritone Folkcraft Custom Mountain Dulcimer. After talking with Richard, I decided on cherry wood with rosewood accents. It is beautiful. Richard, Aaron, and Jim picked out some amazing wood sets for it. It sounds great too. The cherry adds a bit more sparkle and volume to the overall lower tones. The craftmanship, again, is top notch. The custom case is beautiful too, thanks to Pam's talent.
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!!!)
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!
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!
