Nice to have strings that work on an ancient amateur dulcimer

By Paul Race

from Undisclosed

Comments about D'Addario J64 Dulcimer 4-String Set:

I recently rehabilitated a 40-year old Hondo II dulcimer that had been neglected for at least 30 years. Glue, oil, grease, and lots of polish. The first set of (other brand) strings I bought had the little brass grommets on the end. Even when I knocked them out, the loops on the strings weren't big enough to go around the screw heads that this thing used as pegs. Got a setof D'Addario J6401 Dulcimer strings, and the loops fit fine. Tone was good also. Considering this thing is built from furniture woods, it is sounding and looking pretty good. Thanks, D'Addario

Nice strings

By James Kirkwood

from Undisclosed

Comments about D'Addario J64 Dulcimer 4-String Set:

I don't have too much to compare these strings to, but I just put them on my latest dulcimer build and the sound was terrific. The dulcimer has a longer than usual nut to fret length and is made from sycamore with a Lutz spruce top. It's the 8th dulcimer I've built. The .014 (middle string) provides a strong tone to balance the bass strings and the two melody strings. Although I suspect that I'm getting better at building them, it might be that the great sound is from the strings. My customer and I put these on after fitting and adjusting the nut and saddle, and he was simply taken back by the sound, which made me proud. So thanks for the inexpensive and great strings, and for the quick service during Christmas time!!!

D'Addario J64 Dulcimer Strings

By Judy Myres

from Undisclosed

Comments about D'Addario J64 Dulcimer 4-String Set:

These are the only strings I use on my dulcimers. Most sets of dulcimer strings use the same gauge string for the melody and middle strings. I like the sound I get from the 3 different gauges of strings with the middle string being slightly heavier than the melody strings. These strings are good quality and very reliable.

Good Strings, Poor Size

By Dulcimerist

from Billings, MT

Comments about D'Addario J64 Dulcimer 4-String Set:

These were the string sets that I initially used on my dulcimers, but this is a poor choice of string sizes for a typical dulcimer. While the two .012 gauge strings are ideal for the melody strings, the .022 wound string is too light for the bass string. The light gauge makes the bass string prone to buzzing and other problems. The wound bass string also produces an annoying squeak, and a dulcimer player would be much better off with a .024 gauge phosphor-bronze flat-wound string in its place. A .015 gauge string produces a much better sound than the .014 included in this string set as well. Dulcimer players would be much happier skipping these string sets, individually purchasing each string they need for their particular instrument. I've been playing the mountain dulcimer for 22 years, own five dulcimers, and will always purchase my strings individually.
