Folkcraft® Custom Series Dulcimer, Maple Body

This dulcimer is beautiful! Great sustain mellow sound with the Galax bottom and a lot easier to play with shorter 25” VSL. I’m finding my flat picking is better as well.

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
