The Folkcraft Custom Series 6-String mountain dulcimer has everything you want in a powerful, rich strumming-oriented dulcimer. Ideal for both chord playing and noter-drone style performance, the three doubled courses of strings will give you power and sustain that just doesn't happen with a three- or four-string dulcimer.

What can you customize on a 6-string dulcimer instrument? Pretty much anything you imagine - fret patterns, sound holes, body woods, tone woods, and more!

Our 6-string dulcimer instrument is based on our Folkcraft Custom Series Mountain Dulcimer, and has our largest body and a 1 1/2" wide fretboard. A flat head is standard, with six enclosed-gear tuners, three on each side of the head. Whether your style of play is contemporary or traditional, this instrument does it all!

Folkcraft Six-String 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.
