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

Item Number 2346554

Regular price $9.00

The ultimate set of dulcimer strings. This is the string set we've been installing on new Folkcrafts since 2012. (It is also the set that Folkcraft owner Richard Ash has on his personal dulcimer!)

Strings in this set:
Melody strings (2): .011
Middle string: .013
Bass string: .024RW

The "RW" stands for Roller-Wound. The roller wound strings have a steel core, with a brass winding. The brass winding has been flattened with rollers, creating a warm sound with very little string squeak.

Dulcimer parts

I haven't had a chance to use the parts I purchased to restore my "new-to-me" vintage dulcimer, but it was great to be able to find all the bits I needed in one place. Richard offered some valuable advice.

Folkcraft strings

I’m very happy with my purchase for the Ballnd strings for my Folkcraft Custom dulcimer. Would recommend them

The strings are great, nice bright tone. Exactly what I needed

These strings help my dulcimer to play “like butter”!

I am very satisfied with these strings. I put them on my Kurt Simerman dulcimer, and it really sings now! Great sustain, smooth to the touch, and comfortable. Yes, it is true that the bass string isn’t 100% silent, but I don’t want it to be. I love a little bit of that sweet string sound. It’s the perfect level of quiet/zip for me. These will be my go-to strings from now on 🙂
