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).

They Made a Big Difference

I installed Folkcrafts bass dulcimer strings on my bass, and it now sounds great as a solo instrument. With the prior strings the dulcimer was great for accompanying but effective as a solo with only some tunes. Now it does justice to any melody so I'm playing it a lot more. The difference is the bronze wound strings and the thin (for a bass) .022 melody strings. Because of the depth of my dulcimer both melody strings are needed to produce sufficient volume. But the two unison strings blend beautifully with the other two.

Love my baritone strings

The strings go on easy and sound good. Richard is always willing to help me decide which strings. Thank you.


I love the folk craft strings. Richard was so helpful when I ordered wrong the first time. He patiently answered my questions about strings to help me understand.

gift of strings

these strings were given as a gift to a musician friend of mine. the local music store either could not or would not obtain them for him. he does not like to shop online so he reached out to me for assistance. i researched dulcimer strings because i know nothing about them. i purchased the Folkcraft strings hoping for the best; my friend was not disappointed. fast shipping & a great price for the quality! He is now a customer for life and highly recommends them & their product.
