Thread Name: Help: Dulcimer strings
Subject: RE: Help: Dulcimer strings
I've had the problem on one of my instruments, and found that I could salvage a "ball" from another string, slip it into the loop, and with only moderate dexterity get it to work quite nicely. You may have to hold it together until you get a little tension on the string.

This may not work with all kinds of balls, and you can't do it if you don't have the balls for it, but...
