Plain Strings:

Twined Strings:

NOTE: Twined strings come with a counter-clockwise twist. Strings can be made with a clockwise twist for left-handed players at no extra charge; please specify when ordering. All twined strings come with one natural loop, which is the result of the way they are created.

Looped Ends:

All loops come in one of three standard diameters: small (3 mm), medium (4mm), and large (5mm). Custom-sized loops are available at no extra charge by special request. Please specify loop size when ordering. (All twined strings come with one natural loop, which is the result of the way they are created.)

For secondary loops on strings for instruments such as English guittar, please supply the exact distance between the bottom of the hitch pin and the top of the tuning post in its lowest position so that the secondary loop may be placed in the appropriate position.

Special Orders:

Other materials (red brass, silver, gold, etc.) or custom lengths (twined diapasons, etc.) by quotation. Please inquire.
