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.

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 🙂
