Folkcraft® Mountain Dulcimer String Set, Ball Ends (.012" .015" .024"RW)

Item Number 9020271

Regular price $8.00

This set of Folkcraft brand dulcimer strings will keep your instrument sounding great. These ball end strings come in a set of three with the following gauges: .012, .015, .024RW.

Strings in this set:
Melody string: .012
Middle string: .015
Bass string: .024RW

The "RW" stands for Roller-Wound. The roller wound strings have a steel core, with a brass winding. The brass winding has been flattened with rollers, creating a warm sound with very little string squeak.

If you play your dulcimer set up with three strings (instead of four), then we're recommending these gauges - the balance across the strings is better for three-string players. (Some people take off the extra melody string of a four-string dulcimer string set, and play with 011, .013, and .024RW, but the slightly heavier gauges of our optimized three-string set are better for most players and most instruments.)

Squeakless dulcimer strings

I give these strings a rating of 3 stars because although they sound good the bass string is really not squeakless as I had wanted. I have previously been using bronze wound base strings that are very quiet and these are brass wound, which apparently makes a significant difference.
