Strings and tuning


Recommended Posts

I just purchased a 12/11 Lost Valley hammer dulcimer. I need to know what kind of strings it takes and how to tune it. I have mountain dulcimers but have never had a hammer dulcimer.

Hi Lori.  I don't think Lost Valley is building dulcimers anymore. Here is a link to a tuning diagram for a 12/11 dulcimer: http://www.kitchenmusician.net/pages/hdtune.html

Here is a link to Master Works that sells a string set for 12/11 dulcimers: https://masterworksok.com/product/replacement-string-sets

You might find this information on hammered dulcimer strings from Dusty Strings helpful: https://manufacturing.dustystrings.com/hammered-dulcimers/strings
