Until the mid-20th century all Treble guitar strings were made in gut, a material that had been used for thousand of years and that combines good promptness of attack and excellent performances . A fundamental aim of our research has therefore been to design a new synthetic product having the same acoustic properties as gut without its typical defects (high cost, short lifetime, high instability under moisture changes). Our New Nylgut® has precisely all these good qualities without all these defects.
Its features include promptness of attack, excellent performances and a truly remarkable stability of intonation under moisture changes. The Alchemia Basses are wound with of genuine pure silver that ensures the highest possible response in terms of performances, lower interference from finger noise and long lifetime. The wound strings have also been designed according to the principle - absolutely new - of progressively increasing the dynamic performance of the bass register to compensate for the human ear's natural tendency to perceive lower frequencies less audibly.
