Why are strings so expensive?
A string is far more than a thread of sound. Strings must meet the highest demands of playability, projection and resilience. A vast range of sound colors at all volumes, assertiveness when playing in an orchestra and an increased response are just some of the requirements to be satisfied. Intricate designs, complex manufacturing processes, high-quality materials and absolute precision are needed to achieve this. On average, it takes us two years to develop a string.
