II. How is a strings made?
Well, no !!!!! You don’t press a button and hop! You get a string !
A string consists of a round or hexagonal core, onto which a wrap wire of the chosen alloy (steel, nickel, phosphor-bronze, soft brass, silver-plated copper) is wound. This core is tensioned before the wrap wire is unwound onto it. At SKULL STRINGS, we have chosen to spin at a slow speed, so as not to overheat the material, which would cool unevenly and not give the string the precision of a perfect string. After spinning, your strings are checked with a micrometer and a finger to ensure the most even thread possible. And for heaviest gauges, each string is mounted on a monochord to ensure the best possible fit.
