Dulcimer tunings fitting in with key of C
Playing and jamming difficulties...HELP ME!
Probably not a good idea to just throw on strings for which you don't know the gauge or provenance.
Point taken Ken, in future I'll be mindful of the gauges I use. Thanks for the handy link down there too. In my defence the dulcimer shipped from the luthier with these strings on. The luthier is not a US luthier and I think he's sort of drifting off in his own direction somewhat in terms of dulcimer building.
