Folkcraft® Tail Block, For 1 1/2" Wide Fretboard

Item Number 90713201

Regular price $7.00

Building your own mountain dulcimer? You need this part.

If you are making a dulcimer with 1/10" thick sides, our tail blocks are the perfect addition to your parts list. These tail blocks (tailblocks?) are angled correctly for our pre-bent hourglass (our our unbent teardrop) side sets. 

Use one of our precut tail blocks when you glue up the sides to the head, and this block will provide a secure foundation for your dulcimer assembly. Approximately 3/4" thick, and exactly 1 3/4" tall. 

Folkcraft tail blocks are available in sizes perfect for either 1 3/8" fretboards or 1 1/2" fretboards. Match your tail block to the correct head (which is also sized to the fretboard), and you'll be good to go!

Folkcraft tail blocks are designed to be hidden inside your completed dulcimer, and the choice of wood species doesn't have a measurable effect on the instrument's tone quality. We make our tail blocks in a variety of woods, so your tail block will be made of walnut, cherry, mahogany, or any of a variety of other stable hardwoods.

Northern Cherry Side Set - Hourglass Bend by Folkcraft

The cherry wood was a nice selection for a mountain dulcimer. Folkcraft did a beautiful job of bending the wood for my new instrument. I can always depend on Folkcraft (Richard) to do the job of producing excellent dulcimer parts. Thank you for your assistance. Mac
