Subject: RE: Any dulcimer folk help- intonation grrr
Thank you both I have several sets of strings and will try. Playing mostly guitar, or bass, or mandolin, or keyboards (!), none of them has the particular oddness.

The string length of the dulcimer is not wildy different to a guitar. They just seem to act rather differently!

I presume it is same set of strings for DAA tuning as DAD tuning as on the packet the 0.30 string is the one for D or A.

Strange.

I will persevere.
