The variety of sounds that an instrument makes is dependant on both the quality of the instrument and on the quality of the strings.
In our string workshop we produce hand-spun metal strings exclusively.
We use silver plated copper wire and bronze wire to spin the strings. Blanc strings are made from nickel plated steel wire.
We can custom spin strings for instruments including the lyre, harp, dulcimer, cittern, kantele, and children's harps.
As a special service, we can prepare a scale length which we can then use to precision-spin customized strings. For the initial string tensioning we need to have the instrument in our workshop in order to work accurately.
We can also craft custom vibrating strings for instruments up to 2 meters in length.
I would be happy to provide personal advice and assistance regarding string orders.
