fiddlershop.com has string sets

I also get strings from Southwest strings. They have them in different lengths and gauges.

What is the stop length for your instrument?

Gut strings did not preform well on my instrument, but then again it is not the standard Hardanger.

The HFAA sells strings: hfaa.org.

String length on a Hardanger fiddle is about 300mm. (Neck about 111 (edge of body to nut); Stop (edge of body to bridge) about 185.

I recommend the "Fanitullen" brand strings from the HFAA. The Pirastro strings are not the same.

The main reason I'm responding is that you're from Yuma and I happen to be in Yuma right now for work. It's very nice now. 

 

I really should get a Hardanger as (1) I like high bass tuning ADAE and (2) Hardanger tradition is a solo tradition, which is more my style.
