Buy Proper Balalaika Strings
For E strings, buy a classical nylon guitar string. The G string from the La Bella Black 900B Golden Superior Set works best, I think.

For the A, buy John Pearce Loop End Silvered Plain Steel .011.

This will make your balalaika sound the way it was intended. You can find the strings on this site for a total price of $3.98. You're welcome.

La Bella Balalaika Strings
The set has six strings. I only need three. I'm trying to learn this instrument and while I've owned it for decades, it hasn't had a string change since my mom brought it back from a tour of the USSR circa 1970 Sounds pretty good considering it's been a wall hanging or garage dweller for all these years. Shame on me!

As a beginner, these strings are great. Hold the tone and sound awesome. Spaceba Bolschoi!

La Bella Balalaika Metal, 3 Single Loop End Strings
I bought these to restring my uncle's balalaika, and they get the job done. I lack knowledge on balalaikas and their strings. This was the first time I have restrung a balalaika. I don't really know their quality, but I don't have any complaints either.
