Tuning Charts & String Gauge Guides

These charts can be used to help when tuning of your Dulcimer as they illustrate the note name for each string. The Charts  also identifies the thickness (gauge) of string that each note uses. The Gauge is written as a number e.g .010

You will need this information when ordering replacement strings.

The Chart that relates to your Dulcimer will depend on the size of your Dulcimer.
