"Getting to Know You"

FolkRoots® Custom Series Dulcimer, Mahogany Body, Spruce Top. The first thing I noticed was that the harmonics play and ring clear, pure, and easy. The next thing I noticed was that when I tried to hammer on, they came through clean and easy too. My hands are happy to be playing on the shorter 26 inch VSL. The 1.5 fret is handy for playing some songs that I want to learn. I think she and I prefer both it when the house is not too cold. I think I am loving the warm sound, and I look forward to getting to know her better. Thank you.

Beautiful instrument, gorgeous sound

My new dulcimer is so easy to play that from the moment I picked it up, I played better than ever before. What a confidence boost! I am making more beautiful music than every before! It calls me to play it like no instrument ever has before. Thank you Folkcraft!

Awesome. Wonderful to play. Came in great condition

Bass dulcimer - WOW

My bass dulcimer arrived today and I am delighted with its sound and looks. The Eastern red cedar I chose turned out wonderfully. The sound is deep and rich.
