Design Your Own FolkRoots® H Series Mountain Dulcimer

Item Number 9000031

Regular price $895.00 (Plus additional options, if added)
This item ships for free, worldwide.

The FolkRoots H Series dulcimer is very similar to our D Series dulcimer, but it has a few key upgrades and additions. Starting with our largest body (8” wide at the lower bout, 2 1/4” deep), plus your choice of woods, both both domestic and exotic, we've added a few upgrades.

The FolkRoots H Series mountain dulcimer has a 4-string flat head, and is typically strung up with 3 strings. With a 1 1/2” wide fretboard, the three strings are farther from the edges of the fretboard, making it easier to do string bends (and harder to push the strings off the side of the fretboard). The fretboard has a Gabon ebony veneer, and position dots at frets 3, 7, 10, and 14. Choose from five scale lengths, dozens of sound hole choices, and three fret patterns, and have us build your ideal dulcimer!

Please allow six to eight weeks for delivery of your custom-built dulcimer.

Love the Tone, Sustain and PickUp

A note to Richard Ashe says it all. “Oh my, Richard!! It’s beautiful, everything I hoped for and more. The tonal quality and sustain are wonderful. Don’t know that anything but mahogany and western cedar could sound as sweet! Worth every penny!! Thank you for a perfect instrument!!” This teardrop dulcimer is my second from Folkcraft.
My first dulcimer was a walnut/butternut custom teardrop. This latest one is a ‘Ready To Ship’. Both are beautifully finished and sound great, rich sound, great sustain. Will I get a third? You never know. If I do, it will be another Folkcraft.

Beautiful instrument

The dulcimer was exactly as I ordered, and wonderfully crafted. It has a lovely sound, and is easily tuned. In fact if arrived almost exactly in tune. I am a beginner, and this is a joy to play, which encourages practice.

Great Custom Dulcimer

Love this dulcimer. Great workmanship. Lovely wood. Sounds great. Exactly as ordered. Thanks.

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.

Bass Dulcimer

I love my bass dulcimer, such a deep and warm sound. And, thank you for taking the time to answer my many questions. 😊
