Folkcraft® Mountain Dulcimer String Set, Six String, Ball Ends (.011" .011" .013" .013" .024"BW .011")

Item Number 2310231

Regular price $10.00

This ball end set of 6 Folkcraft-brand dulcimer strings are great for your six-string dulcimer. Providing a good balance of tone, brightness, and clarity, these strings will play well and sound great. Ball end dulcimer string gauges are: .011, .011, .011, .013, .013, .024BW.

Strings in this set:
Melody strings (2): .011
Middle strings (2): .013
Bass strings (1 each of): .011 and .024BW

When we string up six-string instruments here in the shop, we'll use two .011 strings for the melody course, two .013 strings for the middle course, and one .011 and one .024BW string for the bass course. The melody strings are tuned in unison, the middle strings are tuned in unison, and the bass strings are tuned one-high (same as the melody string) and one-low (one octave below the melody string).

Changing to Bass

As always, Richard was helpful and sent me exactly what I needed to change a 6-string dulcimer to a 3 string bass. It sounds wonderful, and adds a new texture to our group.

Folkcraft strings are the best I've found.

Excellent strings.

Baritone Strings

I have been contemplating purchasing a baritone dulcimer and ordered these strings as a trial for my standard dulcimer to help me decide whether I'd like the baritone sound. The strings went on my instrument nicely but I knew there might be somewhat of a lesser quality to the sound because I was putting them on an instrument that did not have the right size bridge and nut for these larger strings. And indeed I did detect a bit of mild buzz but it was not a significant deterent to my playing in the baritone range for my test. I have subsequently decided to get a baritone so I would say my teat was successful. I would buy these strings again for a baritone.

Mountain Dulcimer String Set

I've stopped using any string sets other than Folkcraft at this point. These sets are the best for me.
