Folkcraft® Roller-Wound Brass Strings, Ball Ends, Pack Of Twelve, .054

Item Number 9072276

Regular price $29.00

Twelve roller-wound brass strings. This is the string that Folkcraft started using for its dulcimer bass string back in 2012. A bit brighter, a bit smoother to the fingers, and a bit louder. The ultimate wound string for your dulcimer!

These strings are sometimes called "squeakless", and they certainly squeak less than regular (not roller-wound) strings. However, there's no such thing as an entirely squeakless string. We recommend these strings wholeheartedly.

This particular string is .054" (54/1000 of one inch) in diameter, and is sometimes called .054RW. Each string has a total length of 37 inches (37"), and has approximately 36" of that total length covered with the brass winding.

Back for more

This string feels good to my fingers and the sound is very nice to my ear. I'll be back for more when the time comes.

These Strings Work

I have tried several types of strings, but keep coming back to these. They seem to fit for me. I have purchased in bulk them several times and will continue to do so.

Great product

The roller wound strings sound great and I love not hearing the “buzz” when I slide up frets. They also break less than the strings I was using.

Bill Lloyd
Great strings!

I always order my strings from the folks at Folkcraft. Always good quality and Folkcraft always come through. If you have questions about different types of strings or gauges, just ask Rich! He’ll steer you right!

My order of Folkcraft Roller -Wound Bass Strings, Ball Ends.

My order arrived in a very timely fashion. I had actually ordered 12 of each size string for my Folkcraft Mountain Dulcimer and they all came at the same time. They are high quality, very nice strings. I set down and separated the string into sets of 1bass string, one middle string and one melody string and placed each set in a ziplock bag, so I now have 12 sets of strings at a much cheaper price than if I had ordered the strings already packaged as sets. I am very pleased with Folkcraft Instruments and their high quality products and customer service.
