Synthetic core harp basses “AR”

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. The development of a new synthetic material (both as monofilament and multifilament) with characteristics similar to silk (in case of multifilament) or to gut (in case of monofilament) has always been a fundamental goal of our research. The Nylgut® represents the fruit of this research allowing the rediscovery of a different sound than that of polyamides, complemented by an excellent intonation stability, superior to that of the best Nylon strings.

 

How does our coding work?

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

For example: AR212 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 AR series proceeds in increasing intervals of one semitone at a time starting with the thinnest at AR178.
