I love the black coated strings. They sound wonderful and are easy to change.
Folkcraft® Black Coated Mountain Dulcimer String Set, Ball Ends (.011" .011" .013" .024"BW)
So far am enjoying the sound they make and definitely like how they look against my black ebony fretboard.
I put the strings on my McCafferty dulcimer and they sound great. Can't wait to see how they sound on my Folkcraft teardrop
