Folkcraft Black Walnut Hourglass Dulcimer Kit

Item number 2310052, Regular price $275.00

Have you ever dreamed of building a fine musical instrument, but don't have the time (or the tools) to prepare the wood for assembly? We can help you fulfill your dreams with the Folkcraft black walnut dulcimer kit!
 
Folkcraft dulcimer kits are ready to assemble. All of the hardware (machine heads, nut, bridge, end pins, strings) is included; the sides are already bent; the scroll head is shaped, routed, and drilled; the fingerboard is already fretted (by the same luthiers that build the world famous Folkcraft and FolkRoots dulcimers); the wood has all been sanded to at least 120 grit; and detailed instructions are included with every kit.
 
You will need a few hand tools (a knife, a drill, a hammer, a screwdriver), sandpaper, and wood glue to assemble your dulcimer. For finishing, we recommend either polyurethane or a Danish oil.
 
Folkcraft dulcimer kits are enjoyed by hobbyists, and by recreational builders everywhere. Folkcraft dulcimer kits are sold (in large quantities, year after year) to professional dulcimer builders who assemble and finish the instruments themselves, selling the completed dulcimers at festivals and in their own shops.
 
So whether you're looking to spend a few relaxing weekends building an heirloom instrument that will be treasured by your family for generations, or you're looking for a new business opportunity, you've found what you need - a Folkcraft dulcimer kit!

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.
