Hi Tacey,

So you say the way of playing silk core wire is different from the metal strings?

I am from the Netherlands living in Belgium. There is a harp builder in the Netherlands who sells silk core wires. He told me there is a woman in the U.K. who makes these wires. The price is about 17 Euro per string. So it will be more than 100 Euro changing the bass wires and I don’t know the result of it.

That’s why I would like to know if there is someone who has done this before.

If you know where I can buy these strings or know a website with more information, please tell me.
