Wonderful new Folkcraft custom dulcimer!

This was my fourth custom instrument from Richard Ash and Folkcraft. I can’t say enough good things about working with Richard and his staff. the materials, build and support are tops in every area from order config to receiving a completed instrument in great shape. My latest instrument with walnut body and butternut top also has a very warm and accurate sounding pickup system - another Wow! I have a new custom LapJo on order now so that my original can go back for a refresh! I’ve got to publish “family” pictures soon!

KMW Teardrop Dulcimer

This dulcimer is awesome--beautiful enough to display, but that would be a waste, because its so much fun to play and such a pleasure to listen to (even when I'm the neophyte playing it) . Richard and the KMW instructors were extremely helpful, offering a number of suggestions which somehow did not conflict and resulted in a dulcimer that is easy a joy to play, listen to and display. Definitely one of my best buys!

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.
