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. YouTube video placeholder

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.

I love my dulcimer

My Folkcraft dulcimer not only sounds absolutely beautiful but is also just gorgeous to behold. I’m not a great player as yet, though I will say that I’ve never heard “Oh Susanna” sound quite so amazing in my entire life. I am 100% thrilled with it and look forward to getting better and better with this exquisite instrument on my lap.

Folkcraft® Custom Series Dulcimer, Walnut Body/Spruce Top.

I've been playing mountain dulcimer for a few years but still very much a beginner. This dulcimer is perfect for me, my hands and my abilities yet one I believe will allow me to progress as a player. Thanks Richard for your time and recommendations when I was at the shop! The tone is amazing.
