Item number 2310231, Regular price $8.95

This set of 6 Folkcraft-brand dulcimer strings are great for your six-string dulcimer. Providing a good balance of tone, brightness, and clarity, these strings will play well and sound great. Gauges are: .011, .011, .011, .013, .013, .024BW.
 
When we string up six-string instruments here in the shop, we'll use two .011 strings for the melody course, two .013 strings for the middle course, and one .011 and one .024BW string for the bass course. The melody strings are tuned in unison, the middle strings are tuned in unison, and the bass strings are tuned one-high (same as the melody string) and one-low (one octave below the melody string).

When people think of heirloom-quality instruments, they think of Folkcraft.

Here's why: Folkcraft instruments are handmade in the United States of America, not in a cheap overseas factory. Our instruments are hand crafted one at a time, not on an assembly line. Our instruments are made of solid woods, not out of plywood.
dulcimer wall at folkcraft instrumentsFolkcraft instruments are made with pride and tradition, using the same methods as our founders used in 1968. Folkcraft Instruments is a family business, with a father/son team putting their skill and experience into every instrument they create.

“Handmade in the USA since 1968.” It's not only a slogan, but your assurance that you are playing the best folk instruments ever made. People choose Folkcraft for our deep-rooted tradition in quality, pure acoustic tone, and the simple joy that is brought from playing the instrument.

We put our heart and soul into every instrument we make – a technique that began nearly 50 years ago and is proudly maintained today. Go ahead and play one. We think you'll find your own heart and soul going into the music you create on a Folkcraft.

Folkcraft Instruments. Handmade. One at a time. For you.
