Re: Has anyone ever tried making their own strings?

There was a discussion "Over-Wound Strings Breaking" on HPSCHD-L back in November of last year that got into making overwound strings.

You can find the archives here: https://list.uiowa.edu/scripts/wa.exe?A0=HPSCHD-L but I'm not sure if you have to subscribe to the list or not (it's free).

Re: GAL AL index?

The closest thing I've seen is the "topic index" link underneath each Big Red Book index here: http://www.luth.org/books/books.html#BRB6

There's also a way to search their publications here: http://www.luth.org/search/

Re: Hammered dulcimer soundboard question

How thick is the ply? I've used 1/4" mahogany on a 13/13 (fixed soundboard) and 1/4" redwood on a 14/15 (floating soundboard).

@Randolph, no, no commission on click through sales (unlike our Amazon/Rockler/Woodcraft links). That being said, if you do order from them you could thank them for supporting us.

And just to clarify, the winner gets both the Rocklite and Richlite fingerboards.
