Dusty Strings Manufacturing / Ordering / Order Dulcimer Strings Online

Hammered Dulcimer Strings

To find out what diameter and type of string you need, look in your Hammered Dulcimer Owner's Guidebook for a string chart, or download one for the appropriate model here. If you are not sure what model you have, you can find it written on a sticker inside one of the sound holes. If you have a dulcimer by a different maker, be sure to read the Strings for Non-Dusty Dulcimers section on our dulcimer strings page before ordering. Please order carefully, as strings are not returnable.

Shipping and Order Fulfillment

Orders placed online are usually shipped by US Mail within 1 or 2 business days. If you have a deadline or would like us to look into expedited shipping options, please call and place your order over the phone.

Individual Strings

45" long, loop end strings

Notes: We no longer sell .020" phosphor bronze wire. We ran into too much inconsistency in the wire's strength, and have switched to using .022" PB in its place.

As of August 2016, we have improved the string design a little bit for some of our Chromatic Series dulcimers, so if you're ordering individual strings, it is a good idea to download a new string chart first. We no longer sell .020" steel wound strings, and recommend replacing those with .022" steel wound.
