Following Bing Futch's suggestion, I switched from DAD to CGC and brought my string gauges up to 28-18-14. Richer sound, consistent tension across all three strings. Still a slight buzzing in my middle string, which isn't fully seating in the old tighter A-string grooves, but that will settle down soon, I think.
Good product. I prefer the tone of the bronze wound. Swapped them out on two dulcimers so far.
Thanks for all your help.
I ordered the wrong strings and Richard kindly told me to return them and he would replace them at no charge to me including shipping. It was my mistake and I sent them back with the cost of shipping. It would have been wrong of me to have taken advantage of his courtesies. Richard was wonderful to deal with and sent the correct strings within days. Regards, Erwin
