5312 - Set of three strings for the Minnesinger Model Hurdy-Gurdy, -D- to -Eb- Tuning

The 3-string set consists of a low drone string, made of nylon, wound with silverplated copper wire, a high drone of monofilament nylon, and a melody string of plain gut. 

It is possible to tune the same strings one tone higher or lower than the nominal pitches for which the string gauges were chosen  -with some change in sound-volume-  but still acceptable sound quality. Too much departure from nominal pitches will result in string breakage, or too "flabby" string tension, if tuning downward. More information is navailable by clicking on: "Downloads & Links" at the bottom left of Front-Page Menu.
