The service I provide is different to traditional bass string suppliers. I don't work from old
string sets; I work from scale data taken directly from the piano. This is the only way in which
the tension, inharmonicity, break percentages, loudness & sustain can be evaluated and I look at
all of these parameters in addition to the wrap ratios when I am designing a new set of strings.
This does mean that you'll need to take accurate measurements (I'm not really interested in
working from rubbings either). Copying old string sets is actually a rather poor way of producing
new strings; the strings I design are optimised to the design of the piano with resulting improved
tone, tunability and tuning stability. I have a detailed booklet that fully explains the service
along with how to take a set of scale measurements - please send an enquiry if you're interested
in receiving this.
I use Roslau core wire with Degan copper. The loops (eyes) are professional-looking and guaranteed
not to break or unravel. If I am supplied with accurate measurements, then you can expect the copper
alignment of the new strings to be equal to or better than most new pianos.
I am confident that these are among the
best quality strings you can get and
there are over 5000 optimised
strings out there being enjoyed!
