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.)

No strings attached!

Happy to get my dulcimer strings but I wish you could package the sets with less/ no plastic… that possible?

Peter Cohee
love the roller wound strings!

Crisp, bright, sweet tone; with good tuners, these strings stay tuned for a long time. Thank you!

I have not yet put the strings on my dulcimer. The instrument is a four sting. I made it in 1967. It has Brazilian rose wood back, ribs and fret-board, spruce belly and Honduras mahogany peg box.

It's the best of the 60 or so that I made.
