I mostly play in DADD (meaning bass string D, middle string A above that, and melody string[s] D above that A), so I use a 24 for the bass, 12 for the middle, and 10's for the melody strings. Don't try to tune 12 gauges up to D on the melody strings. If the middle string doesn't project its sound well (one of my dulcimers has this problem), you might want a bit heavier gauge.
