David, my new Folkcraft dulcimer was charged to my credit card on 12/22. I bet yours isn't far behind. Keep an eye on your statement. When it's charged, it has started in production. Thought you'd like to know.

I think a happy player will be a better player.

David Pedersen:
Susie, curious, will you have a pickup installed?

No, not on this one. I have a Doug Berch dulcimer with a passive pickup, so I have that ability to plug in already. I considered it with this Folkcraft Custom (theirs are really nice active pickups). But, I decided that I didn't need two dulcimers with pickups. Plus, I decided I didn't want the "barn door" type pickup.......it just distracts from the beauty of the wood. But, that's just me. I also have a nice amp and mic setup I can use, if I need to amp this Folkcraft. When I visited there this past summer, Richard said they sell a lot of dulcimers with the pickup and they really like it. It's a personal choice to get it or not.

Susie, Probably Feb or March.

Thanks.  I think the same for mine. They are working on some prototypes in Jan that will slow things down a bit, but I'm sure they'll continue to work hard to get them out. They are working some long hours there, according to Steve.

Congratulations, very exciting! Hope you post pictures after you get it. I also ordered a new dulcimer from Folkcraft (a custom butternut/walnut with wenge accents and a galax back). They are a wonderful group of people there and great to work with. If you ever get a chance to visit them, you'd find it interesting.

Congratulations on your impending arrival. My first dulcimer had a mahogany back and sides and a spruce top. Nice tone and excellent sustain.

Ordered just placed. Folkcraft, African Mohagany Bottom/sides, Sitka Spruce Soundboard. Black Tuners. Very excited.  Make me a better player? NO.  But a really happy one.  Merry Christmas all.
