Folkcraft® Mountain Dulcimer String Set, Ball Ends (.011" .011" .013" .026"RW)

Item Number 2346555

Regular price $9.00

The ultimate set of dulcimer strings. This is very nearly the string set we've been installing on new Folkcraft dulcimers since 2012. The only difference from our stock 4-string set is that this set has a slightly heavier bass string (a .026RW).

Strings in this set:
Melody strings (2) .011
Middle string: .013
Bass string: .026RW

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.

These strings bring out the best sound from my dulcimers

I use Folkcraft strings on all of my dulcimers. They bring out the best sound - so sweet, strong, and with fabulous sustain! I was fortunate to win an EBay auction for a Jack Ferguson custom dulcimer recently, and the strings on it were quite dull, even though they were not “old”. I just had Folkcraft strings put on yesterday, and I am thrilled with how that gorgeous dulcimer’s true voice has bloomed! I can’t wait to play it through my amp! Thank you, Folkcraft 🙂

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.

Thanks

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 🙂
