Everything I hoped for!!

Fantastic experience every step along the way. All of my questions were answered quickly and completely. My Folkcraft mountain dulcimer is beautiful and made with skilled craftsmanship. I love how it sounds even though I am a complete beginner. Hoping I can do it justice at some point!

Isn’t she lovely

This dulcimer is beautiful and has a lovely voice. A true work of art. Much thanks to Richard Ash for helping get the perfect string action for me. It’s a joy to play.

Gail Garin
New favorite dulcimer

This cedar top/walnut body with Galax back has a clear, beautiful tone! I have a walnut 27” not custom, it is beautiful but I really wanted another 25” for see if playing. Also I now have an 8 1/2 fret for the first time and that is very handy, as I have played with a 1 1/2 for decades. Love my new dulcimer!!

Baritone dulcimer

Ordering the instrument was very easy, and the instrument was completed well within the estimated timeframe. I like the way the instrument looks and sounds, and I’m enjoying getting to know my new dulcimer!
