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.
I have purchased several of these sets for the great sound and the durability. I've never broken one string. I am currently using them on traditional walmut dulcimers producing the best sound ever. I can recommend them.
Could not be happier with my Beautiful Sounding as well as looking Mountain Dulcimer. The company stays in touch with you along the process and are super courteous and polite. There are also many helpful learning sources available to you from them. I named my new dulcimer Georgie Boy.
I cannot be more satisfied with my custom dulcimer. The sound is terrific and resonates for a long time. Very mellow, no break-in necessary. The finish is great and shows the care and expertise Richard used in building it
I have used these Folkcraft machine heads over several years on dulcimers I have built and on one I modified with a four set with good results. I have some a set this moment ready to install on a dulcimer I working on. I've had no problems and would recomend them.
I ordered replacement strings from Folkcraft. They arrived promptly and were easy to install. They sound great.
Love this strap and it is just the right size for my smaller dulcimer. Very happy with it.
Best capo for the mountain dulcimer. Well made for a descent price!
I bought these loop end strings to re-string my 45 year old dulcimer. They sound great.
The music is great. I love that it comes with 2 copies of the book, so there is no trying to share with, or make copies for, your duet partner. Being spiral bound is wonderful, as well, because the book stays open!
i am very satisfied. Works well.
I give a set of strings to each of the people in my group for Christmas. I know you will come through. I am still playing my Folkcraft dulcimer!!

Nice plan.other plans by Scott offer 2 heal options.spanish and dove tail this plan only offers the dovetail. I think I'm going to change it to the Spanish. I like that connection better. Also you called lt concert parlor and the plan says this is to be used with steel strings as it was drawn after the Lion and healy model Columbus. I think I want nylon strings. I have not started the project yet. I'm collecting up some parts and I guess it's my option to change it the way I want. I do like the size of it. I will know more later after I've built it. I do plan on using this plan but I may alter it.
My two grandsons want to learn how to play the mountain dulcimer and this book is very helpful for them in learning. Lots of very nice songs in the book.
I put these on my 6 string folkcraft dulcimer. They replaced .013 strings and made the dulcimer louder.
