brass or delrin rod for hammer dulcimer

Postby Dave Rudolph » Sat Aug 31, 2013 7:47 pm

I am building a hammer dulcimer and i was wondering if there is a big difference between delrin and brass? And would there be a difference in sound if I used brass on the side bridges only?

Hi Dave and welcome to the forum. Have you looked in our library? There is a lot of stuff in our library on HDs- here are a couple links that talk about brass vs. delrin:
