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

Item number 9020271, Regular price $6.95

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.)

Black Diamond strings

I put the strings on my McCafferty dulcimer and they sound great. Can't wait to see how they sound on my Folkcraft teardrop


Strings for my dulcimer. This is what they installed at the shop, so o use them, too.

Long Lifespan

I was unsure of what strings my dulcimer needed. So I called Richard at Folkcraft and he was very helpful in figuring out what I needed. He recommended these strings. I must say they are great quality and last a long time! The packaging was nice and made it easy to identify what strings gauges were what. I will definitely be back to order more strings soon. Thanks Richard!
