Materials used

Plain steel strings: made of tin-plated hard steel or of softer steel types formerly used for historic musical instruments
Winding wires: made of brass, bronze, phosphor bronze and copper (traditionally hand-drawn)
The strings are available with different-sized ball ends or loop ends.

Our strings are not produced industrially, but rather with a hand-regulated winding process. We also accept small orders.

On request, we are happy to offer professional advice to instrument builders.
