Strings

 

Description

Seriously recommended!

Tailpiece String (Carbon fibre, colour grey)

Increases the string resonance of your instrument in an unbelievable way no matter which strings you are using !!!

Velvet Compas 180 Solo (steel wounded fibre strings excellent for arco and pizz)

Classical string designed for solo tuning. The use of up-to-date textile fibers makes the strings particularly elastic, allowing (the instrument) increased amplitude of vibration, and producing a full, rich, open sound. The pizzicato is strong with long sustain. The strings respond perfectly to the harmonics, which are crystal-clear. Compàs180 requires no change in playing technique by the instrumentalist, while opening up new possibilities in terms of sound, tone and modulation.
