Design Your Own FolkRoots® H Series Mountain Dulcimer

Item Number 9000031

Regular price $995.00 (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 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 your choice of a 1 3/8" or 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, 14, and 17. Choose from five scale lengths, dozens of sound hole choices, and three fret patterns, and have us build your ideal dulcimer!

Each of our handmade dulcimers comes with our best soft carrying case, made here in the Folkcraft workshop. Our rigid case, which offers more protection, is available for an upcharge. Strap buttons are also included.

Please allow eight to twelve weeks for shipping on your custom-built instrument.

Absolutely Amazing Instrument

I wanted to order a MAXDAD chromatic, so I ordered one a couple of months back -- customer service was amazing and cleared up any and all issues that arose during its building and shipping. The instrument arrived at the beginning of this month, and I would say that the instrument is absolutely splendid and sounds loud and sweet. I would definitely buy again if I ever needed another one!

Great service in designing my own

Just got to pick my wood, eastern red cedar, for my dream dulcimer. The actual piece!!! I am so excited to see it on the completed instrument. What a great service.

My New Pet/Dulcimer

Had my new custom dulcimer about 3-4 weeks now, and honestly, I am enjoying it more every day. The quality of the workmanship, top and bottom joints, finish and most importantly, sound is absolutely top notch. Everyone notices the brilliance and warmth of the tones. Needless to say but I’ll say it anyway ..I could not be more happy with this custom dulcimer. Number four in my collection but number one in overall quality.!

Folkcraft Chromatic Dulcimer

I am in love with my new chromatic dulcimer! Folkcraft quality never disappoints. Customer service is always above and beyond expectations. I recently purchase another well known dulcimer and have discovered it was a costly mistake, because the action is too high and "cannot adjusted lower without buzzing". I immediately bought my new chromatic from Folkcraft upon learning that my "other new one" cannot be returned, thus, I have lost money and "they" have lost a customer.
FOLKCRAFT RULES!
