Folkcraft® Mountain Dulcimer String Set, Ball Ends (.012" .015" .024"RW)

Item Number 9020271

Regular price $8.00

This set of Folkcraft brand dulcimer strings (mountain dulcimer string set) will keep your instrument sounding great. These ball end strings come in a set of three with the following gauges: .012, .015, .024RW.

Strings in this set:
Melody string: .012
Middle string: .015
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.

If you play your dulcimer set up with three strings (instead of four), then we're recommending these gauges - the balance across the strings is better for three-string players. (Some people take off the extra melody string of a four-string dulcimer string set, and play with 011, .013, and .024RW, but the slightly heavier gauges of our optimized three-string set are better for most players and most instruments.)

This mountain dulcimer string set is the same set of strings that we use on the instruments we make in the Folkcraft wood shop.

Mountain dulcimer string set

I have purchased several of these sets for the great sound and the durability. I've never broken one string. I am currently using them on traditional walmut dulcimers producing the best sound ever. I can recommend them.

Good strings

I ordered replacement strings from Folkcraft. They arrived promptly and were easy to install. They sound great.

Folk craft dulcimer string set with loop ends

After using several of these string sets, they all have been very consistent and very good quality.

Gail Garin
No strings attached!

Happy to get my dulcimer strings but I wish you could package the sets with less/ no plastic… that possible?

Peter Cohee
love the roller wound strings!

Crisp, bright, sweet tone; with good tuners, these strings stay tuned for a long time. Thank you!
