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).

Good strings!

I put these strings on an "extra" dulcimer I had for use in recording music. Nice strings, good tone.

Janice Carter

Excellent service and a good product!

Oscar Stern
Very cool

Roller Wound Strings (aka Compression Wound Strings) are great especially for Slide blues playing. Bronze Wound Versions would be cool for a new sound (as well as Stainless Steel, Black Coated, Etc.)

Baritone Strings

The delivery process went very smooth. Strings look great. I've yet to install them. Anxious to do so.

3 string success

I chose the 3-string set for my baritone dulcimer because I was having difficulty pressing cleanly on the double .014 strings in the treble position and 2 .013 strings didn't ring clear enough. I decided to try the set with the single .016 string in the treble position and am happy with the result. It rings clear. I still need some padding on my thumb as I slide my thumb and it tends to get sore. A few layers of liquid bandage and cotton do the trick. I highly recommend this set of strings!
