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’.

AR - genuine silk wound 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 basses for harps

Fino ai primi decenni del XX° secolo le corde gravi filate dell’arpa furono costituite principalmente da un’anima di seta naturale rivestita con filo di rame argentato a sezione tonda. Solo dopo il 1950 si è cominciato ad utilizzare il fiocco di Nylon. Le corde realizzate con questo materiale presentano caratteristiche diffenti da quelle di seta (maggiore sustain, maggior stabilità ai cambi climatici, maggiore allungamento in fase di acordatura  e, in genere, una resa acustica più ‘metallica’).

Noi abbiamo invece introdotto un altro materiale sintetico…

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 "AR"

Perché le corde filate con anima in seta?

Dalle  fonti storiche e iconografiche in nostro possesso sappiamo che l’arpa cominciò ad avvalersi di corde basse di tipo rivestito a partire circa dalla metà del XVIII secolo.  Queste corde erano costituite da anima in filamenti di seta parallela ricoperta di filo di rame argentato.

Nonostante l’introduzione di corde basse dotate di anima di metallo da parte di Erard (verso il 1830-35) le corde con sola anima in seta rimase la scelta commerciale più comune sicuramente fino alla fine del XIX secolo/inizi del seguente.

Con la maggior diffusione  delle corde gravi con anima di metallo e l’incremento della tensioni le corde in seta persero via via interesse.

 

Che differenze meccaniche ed acustiche ci sono tra una anima in multifilamento di seta e di Nylon?

L’avvento delle poliammidi (Nylon) intorno agli anni 1950 ha contribuito in maniera decisiva al tramonto della seta come anima per i bassi dell’Arpa.

Le corde di nylon presentano due aspetti caratteristici: una maggior allungamento della corda (molti giri alla spina conica o bischero);  una sonorità marcatamente più brillante; maggior persistenza del suono.

Le corde con anima di seta invece possiedono un minor allungamento, hanno una sonorità piu calda e di natura più percussiva: esattamente il tipo di sonorità che si ascoltava nel XVIII e XIX secolo

 

Che criteri costruttivi abbiamo adottato?

L’aspetto più problematico ha riguardato il criterio di ripartizione tra percentuale di filo metallo e la percentuale di seta da adottare (detto ‘Indice di Metallicità’); infatti a parità di tensione di lavoro si possono realizzare corde dove la ricopertura metallica risulta più o meno percentualmente influente. Laddove prevale il metallo si avrà una resa più brillante e viceversa.

Dopo accurati studi abbiamo pertanto deciso di adottare nella scelta  rapporto metallo/anima i dati ricavati dalla serie di bassi originali risalenti al 1797 perfettamente conservati e oggi conservati a Parigi (Baud: https://www.jstor.org/stable/841675 e https://www.jstor.org/stable/842477 ).

Vi sono tuttavia due problematiche:

  1. la serie di corde rivestite su seta di Baud fu però progettata limitatamente per un arpa a 37 corde; mentre nel corso del XIX secolo  vengono aggiunti alle arpe diversi altri bassi.
  2. la maggior parte delle arpe oggi utilizzate non sono copie ma strumenti originali più o meno restaurati: è molto rischioso montarle con i supposti valori di tensione del passato.

Avendo realizzato la retta delle proporzioni anima/metallo del set di corde originali di Baud abbiamo pertanto estrapolato le medesime proporzioni costruttive estendendo il range  di corde disponibili più sottili che in quello delle più gravi.  In altre parole al range delle corde di Baud (2.00-3.74 mm  in budello equivalente) ci siamo estesi nell’acuto fino al valore 1.75 mm e nel grave fino al valore  di 5.04 mm (per le arpe del XIX secolo).

 

Come funziona la nostra codifica?

Il numero abbinato al codice AS esprime il diametro teorico dell’ipotetica corda in budello naturale (cioè il suo ‘budello equivalente’)

Ad esempio: AS212 significa che la corda rivestita su seta denominata AS possiede un budello equivalente di 2,12 mm (utile per i calcoli).

Nota bene: la progressione dei diametri della nostra serie AS procede per intervalli crescenti di un semitono alla volta partendo da quella più sottile pari a AS178.
