Strings for Historical Harps

NGH - New Nylgut for Historical harps

Our NGH strings are manufactured in New Nylgut®, a material which represents a good synthesis of the mechanical and acoustical properties of nylon and of PVF (carbon) strings.

SHN - Sugar for Historical harps

With a transparent look that resembles crystal glass, SHN strings are made using a blend of a recently discovered Italian bio-plastic derived from sugar-cane, that we call ‘Sugar’.

AS - genuine wound silk Harp Basses

From the few historical and iconographical sources in our possession, we know that the harp began to use wound bass strings in the mid-18th century. These strings consisted of silver-plated copper wire wrapped over a parallel silk filament core.

AR - Synthetic core harp basses

Since the beginning of the XX century harp wound bass strings had been manufactured with a natural silk core wound with a round section silvered copper wire. Mechanical features of silk are substantially different from those of Nylon, a material that was firstly introduced around the middle of 20th Century

NGH synthetic strings for Historical Harps

Our NGH strings are manufactured in New Nylgut®, a material which represents a good synthesis of the mechanical and acoustical properties of nylon and of PVF (carbon) strings. These strings are characterized by their gut colour, have the same density and acoustical qualities similar of natural gut (gauges to be used are the same of gut). New Nylgut® can be considered the first “synthetic” version of gut.

The main feature of the NGH strings is undoubtedly the impassable tuning stability to changes in humidity and temperature, considerably superior to gut and Nylon as well.

These strings are available in three colours: natural, red and black.

NOTE

In order to achieve perfect tuning stability within a few minutes, it is recommended to pull each string sideways while tuning, stopping once the string’s tuning does not drop any further after the pull.

“SHN", "SHR", "SHB" Synthetic harp strings

With a transparent look that resembles crystal glass, SHN strings are made using a blend of a recently discovered Italian bio-plastic derived from sugar-cane, that we call ‘Sugar’.
The sound of these strings is clearly brilliant, clean and prompt, and provide great acoustic power.

Laboratory tests showed that SHN strings have a projection of sound (measured in Joules) and a sustain respectively 18% and 24% more than fluorocarbon strings.

These strings have both the sweetness and sing-ability of gut, and, at the same time, the clearness and promptness of attack typical of Fluorocarbon

Even though the surface is extremely smooth, the grip on the fingers is remarkable; in other words, they will never feel slippery.

The SHN strings have a gut-like color (light yellowish brown) and are also available in red (SHR type) or blue (SHB type).

Genuine silk wound basses for harp "AS"

Why strings with wound silk cores?

From the historical and iconographical sources in our possession, we know that the harp began to use wound bass strings in the mid-18th century. These strings consisted of silver-plated copper wire wrapped over a silk filament core.

Despite Erard (in the 1830-35) introduced wound bass strings with metal cores, strings wound on silk cores remained the most common commercial choice until the end of the 19th century/beginning XX.

With the increasing popularity of metal-cored bass strings and the increase in tension, the interest in silk strings declined.

 

What are the mechanical and acoustic differences between a silk and a nylon multifilament core?

The introduction of polyamides (Nylon) around 1950’s has contributed decisively to the demise of silk as cores in bass harp strings.

Nylon strings present two characteristic aspects: a greater elongation of the string (that translates into a higher number of turns on the peg) and a markedly brighter and more persistent sound.

Silk strings, on the other hand, stretch way less, have a warmer sound and have a more percussive sound: that was exactly the type of sound that was heard in the 18th and 19th centuries.

 

What construction criteria was adopted?

The most problematic aspect concerned the criterion for choosing the proper percentage between metal wire and silk core (also defined as Metallicity Index); in fact, under the same working tension, strings can be made where the metal coating is more or less influential: when metal prevails, the sound will result brighter, and vice versa.

After careful studies, when choosing the metal/core ratio, we therefore decided to adopt the same data obtained from the measurements on original series of basses dating back to 1797 and perfectly preserved in Paris (Baud: https://www.jstor.org/stable/841675 e https://www.jstor.org/stable/842477 ).

However, there are two main issues:

  1. Baud’s series of silk-coated strings was only designed for a 37-string harp, while during the 19th century several other basses were added to the harps;
  2. most of the harps that are used today are not copies of original instruments, but actually more or less restored original instruments: therefore, installing strings with the supposed tension values used in the past is quite risky.

Having calculated a linear correlation between the core/metal proportions of Baud’s original set of strings, we have therefore extended the range of available strings, both on the thinner side and on the thicker side, using the same constructional proportions.  In other words, from the range of Baud’s strings (2.00-3.74 mm in equivalent gut) we have reached a value of 1.75 mm in the high range and 5.04 mm in the low range (for XIX century harps).

 

How does our coding work?

The numerical part of our AS codes expresses the theoretical diameter of the hypothetical natural gut string (i.e. its ‘gut equivalent’)

For example: AS212 means that the silk-core wound string has an equivalent gut diameter of 2.12 mm (useful for calculations).

Please note: the progression of diameters in our AS series proceeds in increasing intervals of one semitone at a time starting with the thinnest at AS178.
