Folkcraft LAP-JO® String Set, 3 Strings, Loop End (.012" .015" .026"SS)

Item Number 2329208

Regular price $8.00

This set is chosen specifically for our specialty lap instrument with strings, the Folkcraft LAP-JO! These loop end strings are the right choice of gauges for a player that chooses 3-string playing.

Strings in this set:
Melody string .012
Middle string: .015
Bass string: .026SS

The "SS" stands for Stainless Steel. Stainless steel wound strings have a steel core, with a stainless steel winding. The stainless steel helps the LAP-JO achieve that bright, traditional banjo sound.

With a .012 for the melody string, a .015 for the middle string, and a .026 stainless steel wound string for the bass, this set balances the volume and tone across the strings (great for flatpicking!) and has a clear, bell-like tone quality.

Wonderful Strings

I replaced the strings on my Lap-Jo with this new set and it absolutely sings now.

Love the LAP-JO!

It is super-fun. I love being able to do the banjo sound on the dulcimer fretboard. The instrument is solid and beautiful, with a bright tone.

Very cool

Stainless Steel Dulcimer Strings. For the 4 String version (I like having the Doubled Melody strings because it does have a special sound) I just needed to get another 12. These can be used on a Regular Dulcimer too. Ball End versions would be cool because most Banjo Tailpieces made today are Terminator Tailpieces. The Lap-Jo can use any Loop End Dulcimer strings, I'd just need a Terminator Tailpiece so I can use Ball End versions too.
