Beautiful and functional

It is rare to have a handcrafted instrument, and she is a beauty. Also I would recommend the hard case. It is pricey, but beautifully made, and will protect your dulcimer.

Collection

I now have a FolkRoots dulcimer from all three builders. Howard Rugg, David Marks, and now Richard Ash. Two standards, and a baritone. Saving up for number four, now. Need a bass!

FolkRoots rocks

I love my FolkRoots dulcimers. I have an old one made in California by Howard Right, and a new one made in Indiana by Jim Ash. Huge sound on both of them!
