Peter Fisher Help: Hammer dulcimer strings (12) Help: Hammer dulcimer strings 23 Jul 01

I am building a hammer dulcimer from plans that call for phosphor bronze and brass wire for some of the bass strings and I have been having trouble finding a source for the wire (which I need in eight foot lengths or longer, but I only need a total of 8 feet to 32 feet for each guage, and coils seem to come with at least 200 feet). Steel wire is easy to come by, but a web search for brass has not turned up anything (except that apparently brass is more common for zithers and harpsichords, steel for pianos). Any suggestions?
