This item ships for free, worldwide.

The Folkcraft Custom Series mountain dulcimer has everything you might possibly want in a handcrafted instrument. Our largest body (8” wide at the lower bout, 2 1/4” deep), your choice of both domestic and exotic woods, and much, much more - from scale length to sound holes. Go crazy and configure YOUR ideal dulcimer!

Folkcraft Custom Series dulcimers are available in both a traditional Kentucky body and in a more contemporary California body. The Kentucky body creates a quieter, more subdued tone, and the California body offers a louder, more mellow, more guitar-like tone quality. More information can be found here.

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.

There are a lot of options to choose when designing an instrument for us to make for you. We have a reference/resource page here, and you're always welcome to contact us for help and guidance in making great choices.

Please allow us three to four months for shipping on your custom-built instrument.

new dulcimer

The new dulcimer was not only a beautiful work of art, it was a musical work of art as well.

The dulcimer was packaged very well and arrived in perfect condition. My wife loves her custom series maple body and maple top dulcimer. She was shocked when I let her open it. She wanted a dulcimer in 2005 when visiting Gatlinburg Tn. I glad I was finally able to give her a top notch dulcimer. The craftsmanship really shines through on this dulcimer. It has high quality sound and materials. Customer service was second to none. Everything promised was done. I highly recommend Folkcraft dulcimers.
Thank you Folkcraft

Purple Heaven

My new Purpleheart mountain dulcimer is such a beautiful instrument with an amazingly rich tone. Even though I'm a beginner, my fingers glide over the strings effortlessly. I know I'll enjoy playing it for years to come.

Fishman Pro Blend Pickup

I picked up my Folkcraft Custom dulcimer today, that Richard added a Fishman Pro Blend pickup to. I love it! It sounds great, is easy to use, and is just fun to have. I have 2 Roland amps that can use with my dulcimer. If you're contemplating a Fishman pickup, give it some serious thought.
