Thrumming


#1

Sharon said,

What type of string/cord do people who successfuly thrum use?  I have been
using cotton cord which breaks easily.  Am I just being too rough or is
their a better material?

Depending on the diameter of cord you’re looking for you might try kite
string or chalk line. Both are available at most hardware stores in
100-500 ft spools for under $3.00. Both withstand quite a bit of tension &
also resist abrasion better than most strings or twines.

I’ve never used them for thrumming, but that’s what I’d try if I had to.

Good luck! Let us know how it works.
