Design Your Own Folkcraft Custom Series Six-String Mountain Dulcimer

Item number 9122265, Regular price $1,245.00

The Folkcraft Custom Series Six-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? Pretty much anything you imagine - fret patterns, sound holes, body woods, tone woods, and more!

Our six-string dulcimer 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 closed-gear tuners, three on each side of the head. Whether your style of play is contemporary or traditional, this instrument does it all!

When people think of heirloom-quality instruments, they think of Folkcraft.

Here's why: Folkcraft instruments are handmade in the United States of America, not in a cheap overseas factory. Our instruments are hand crafted one at a time, not on an assembly line. Our instruments are made of solid woods, not out of plywood.

“Handmade in the USA since 1968.” It's not only a slogan, but your assurance that you are playing the best folk instruments ever made. People choose Folkcraft for our deep-rooted tradition in quality, pure acoustic tone, and the simple joy that is brought from playing the instrument.

We put our heart and soul into every instrument we make – a technique that began nearly 50 years ago and is proudly maintained today. Go ahead and play one. We think you'll find your own heart and soul going into the music you create on a Folkcraft.

Folkcraft Instruments. Handmade. One at a time. For you.
