Folkcraft® Roller-Wound Brass Strings, Ball Ends, Pack Of Twelve, .042

Item Number 9072278

Regular price $30.00

Twelve roller-wound brass strings. This is the string that Folkcraft started using for its dulcimer bass string back in 2012. A bit brighter, a bit smoother to the fingers, and a bit louder. The ultimate wound string for your dulcimer!

These strings are sometimes called "squeakless", and they certainly squeak less than regular (not roller-wound) strings. However, there's no such thing as an entirely squeakless string. We recommend these strings wholeheartedly.

This particular string is .042" (42/1000 of one inch) in diameter, and is sometimes called .042RW. Each string has a total length of 37 inches (37"), and has approximately 36" of that total length covered with the brass winding.

First Glance

I like these strings as they are tightly attached to the ball end. I have a few loose balls that escaped and are hiding in the rug. Will only be found when the vacuum sucks them into the bag.

Roller wound brass strings

These are by far the best bass strings I've ever played in my 23 years of dulcimer playing! No squeaks when sliding and they last a LONG time before going dead. I highly recommend them!

Roller-Wound are Great

I bought some of these individual Roller-Wound strings to make some custom dulcimer strings sets for myself. Love these, and it's nice that Folkcraft offers individual strings for this purpose.

Dulcimer strings

One string in each group was to.big. wanted to tune TO DAAA, could not tune the 3rd string to an A. Otherwise everything was fine, instrument sounds good. JB
