I bought both the hard case for air travel and the soft case for around home. Both surpassed my expectations. Made in USA is better. Top quality.
I got one of these deluxe rigid dulcimer cases with my Folkcraft Custom Mountain Dulcimer. It is the best protection you can get for your dulcimer. Not only does it have thick padding, but it also has rigid panels sewn into the sides. top and bottom (hence the name of the case). The dulcimer fits snugly into the case. The design allows for different ways to carry it, whether by the side handle or over the shoulder. The embroidery done on the case, the Folkcraft logo and my name, are top notch. A beautifully designed and sewn case that beats anything for protection of your prized dulcimer.
This case has so many features! I love the D-rings on the outside, it is easy to hook on other small cases or pouches. The back pack straps were an ingenious idea, I like carry it like that most of the time, and the side handle is perfectly placed for balance. Well done Folkcraft!
