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.)

Folkcraft Mountain Dulcimer strings

I have put these new strings on my four string dulcimer. They were easy to install and the sound is great!

Paul DesRosiers

Strings are great. They make my dulcimer sound fresh and bright.

Love These Strings

I get these strings for my custom Folkcraft dulcimer. The roller wound cuts down squeaking, on the bass string. I liked these so much, I go with the RW set for my custom baritone too.

Folkcraft strings

Strings have an amazing tone with volume and clarity beyond other strings. I strongly recommend everyone try them and see for yourself. This is a small investment for the return in improvement of sound and tone.
