By using different winding materials, the diameter, bow response, bow noise, left-hand feeling/sliding feel, sound, volume and corrosion resistance can be adjusted. 

Here is an overview of the different winding materials and their effects: 
 

WINDING DIAMETER BOW RESPONSE BOW NOISE SLIDING FEEL SOUND VOLUME CORROSION RESISTANCE BRILLIANCE FLATTENING EFFECT
ALUMINUM greater better stronger average more brilliant average lower higher lower
SILVER smaller average average increased average lower average average average
CHROMIUM STEEL average inferior lower reduced darker louder higher lower higher
