Received my custom made folkcraft dulcimer this week. It is a true work of art
So beautiful and the sound is wonderful. Love it.🎶
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.
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”.
The custom dulcimer i ordered is so beautiful, so exquisitely crafted and a joy to play. The sound is incredible. My most favorite dulcimer ever.
I absolutely love my new baritone dulcimer! It sounds incredible and is a real joy to look at and play. Thank you for your excellent craftmanship!
