Great place to work with

I wanted to put a better tuning system on my Dulcimer. I called Folkcraft and the owner answered right away. I gave him an outline of what I wanted and he recommended the things I would need to accomplish this. I placed an order and the parts arrived in a very timely fashion. I asked for advice on mounting the parts and his suggestions worked out perfect. The project came out excellent and I am a happy guy now.

FolkCraft Chrome Button Tuners

I installed these on a customers dulcimer that previously had friction tuners. I had a few questions about the conversion, and Richard was very helpful answereing my questions. I was impressed with the overall quality of the tuners and the conversion went without a hitch. Thanks, Richard for the info and a great quality product at a very reasonable price. -Daniel
