Preferred String Tension


General mountain dulcimer or music discussions

I'm probably the odd man out here. I hate the feel of loose feeling strings. If I'm chording 15# tension feels ok but playing noter/drone I prefer 17-20# tension. 
But I also have different dulcimers for different tunings so the string tension stays pretty much the same on all of them.

Dulcimer-Guitar Style Options?


Instruments- discuss specific features, luthiers, instrument problems & questions

Thanks for the plug Ken. Unfortunately I'm not building the Strumdrop American Cittern at this time. In my few years absence from building I have lost my jig/form for building them and haven't got around to making another.

Guitar Strings?


Playing and jamming difficulties...HELP ME!

Along the lines of what Ken and Dusty said....... I figure most dulcimers would benefit from a custom string set instead of a generic set.
Different scale lengths are a major factor and then some we all have our favorite string tension. And as you also learned we all have a preferred tone we like.

Plastic picks & leather picks


FOR SALE:instruments/music items/CDs/Wanted to Buy...

The Plastic picks are made from  coffee can lids, buttercups, etc....... These are great for kids and I have sold them to people that teach guitar classes. I use them to play my nylon string instruments too. You will get an assortment. Some will be thick, some thin, some stiff, some flexible. No choice in what I send. I can't remember what size these are, I just call them standard guitar pick size. I used to sell these on Etsy but the fees got too high for much of a profit. The edges are lightly sanded at this price and you could sand them finer if you had the notion, but I just play them as is with no problem. The photos are for demonstration only and may or may not be what you receive. 
Price: 50 assorted picks for $2.00 + shipping
Or: 250 assorted picks for $10 and free shipping to USA.

 

The leather picks are the same size as the old folkcraft plastic picks. I sell a lot of these. varying thicknesses and stiffness. Once again the photo is for example only. 
Price: 20 leather picks for $2.50 + shipping.
