Spare strings

Spare strings are prepared with Malcolm Rose's wire : his iron, brass and red brass are based on research into the wires used in Europe from the late 17th to the mid 19th century.

The strings are supplied with a loop, wrapped individually, ready to put in place.boucle de cordes en laiton rouge
