Folkcraft Instruments has been crafting handmade mountain dulcimers since 1968. We've been providing the best dulcimers, plus the dulcimer cases, tab books, dulcimer string sets, and everything else a mountain dulcimer player needs. We even provide dulcimer parts - machine heads and wood parts - for builders of all skill levels. We're happy to build a custom mountain dulcimer for you, make you a custom instrument case, or make you a custom string set. All of our dulcimers are handmade in the USA.
It is always a special treat to be in a class with Bing. He is an excellent teacher, giving instruction at the level of his students. He is very personable and pleasant, and of course a marvelous dulcimer player.
Nice selection of tunes, good arrangements.
Nice and bright sounding, they make every song a little better.
I used the Black Walnut for top & bottom the sides were done in the Northern Cherry as was the Scroll Head and the Finger Board. i have a good time building your Dulcimers. Thanks for everything. Marc Nordahl
I always use these strings. High quality, and consistent performance.
Works very well for me. Tightens evenly across the strings and permits strings to emit clear tones with no buzzing.
All of my needs were met for my Dulcimer!
Beautiful color. Very little sanding needed.
Sometimes I put my dulcimer on my desktop or the kitchen island, and the pad is really useful there. It not only keeps the dulcimer from sliding but protects the bottom side from scratches. I don't really have a problem holding my dulcimer in my lap, so the pad isn't really needed there.
my ukulele is well on its way. Your blueprint was exactly what I needed. I recommend that to anyone very detailed.
I am not am experienced dulcimer, player, but I am a multi instrumentalist, and I love their arranging. I’ve played a couple of duets. And they are excellent. The book has multiple levels of play, so there is something for everyone!
I love the slightly thicker gauge for the bass strings to help it sing a little louder! Service was quick; I’ll always buy my strings from Folkcraft because they make it so easy.
Just a wonderful book
Singalongs are such fun and this book is full of great ones
This case is a nice fit for my 28" long and 6" wide teardrop dulcimette. The pouch is a generous size and can hold a good amount of supplies. Sturdy and well-made.
I always use Folkcraft strings. They sound great.
