For Sale: Folkcraft Resonator Dulcimer

FOR SALE:instruments/music items/CDs/Wanted to Buy...

I am selling my chromatic Folkcraft Resonator Dulcimer with a Galax back. I have nuts to set this up as both a 3-string and 4-string equidistant. The nuts allow for choosing between either a high action (for sliding) or a low action (for fretting). Below is a link to an example of how it sounds while fingerpicking in the 3-string low action fretted configuration. The dulcimer is in terrific condition with the only notable scratches being the pick scratches on the resonator cover as you can see in the photos.

Nothing is wrong with the instrument, I just haven’t played it like I thought I would so I’d like to get it in the hands of someone who will give it the attention it deserves. Feel free to message me with any questions or a request for more detailed photographs. 

Body: Northern Cherry

Top: Sitka Spruce

Fretboard veneer: East Indian Rosewood

VSL: 23”

Price: $1200.00, this price includes shipping inside the continental US and I will also make a donation to FOTMD for providing the site to host this sale.

Ruggs & Jackel Pre Folkcraft

Instruments- discuss specific features, luthiers, instrument problems & questions


Considering the same manufacturer, a pre break up Capritaurus W/OSSC (walnut what is ossc?) would be better ?

How about: w/OSSC means “with original soft shell case” — does that fit what you’re seeing?
