Tuning and String Gauge Charts
This list is linked to printable PDFs. This information is important to have when ordering strings. You should make extra copies and place them in a safe place. The price to the right of each string gauge chart is what it would cost you for a complete set of strings for your dulcimer.
If you want me to completely restring your dulcimer, the cost would be:
  • Small Hammered Dulcimers (12/11, 15/14, 16/15s) add $50 labor, $10 for new acetal, and return shipping to the actual cost of the strings.

  • Large dulcimers (3/16/18/9, LCs, 4/19/21/9s) add $75 labor, $10 for new acetal and the return shipping to the actual cost of the strings.

Restringing labor includes removing all old strings, cleaning the instrument, adjusting tuning pin heights, replacing acetal rod, restringing, tuning and resetting the intonation. Any additional repairs not covered by my warranty will entail extra expense. I'd give you an estimate before any additional repairs are undertaken.
