Concedo strings

    Could someone please tell me how the Bow Brand Concedo strings compare to the regular Bow Brand gut strings? I know that the Concedo strings have a white polyurethane varnish that reputedly makes them easier to see in dim light. Do you recommend them? How is the tone? Does the varnish flake off? Thank you.

    Hi Jennifer,

    I tried concedo in the second octave, just to see if I wanted to change over to them.

    Jennifer, I have been using Concedo guts in the fourth and fifth octaves on my 23 for a number of years.

    Rosalind, that is really interesting. I was only using them in the second octave by the way. But it is quite possible I got a bad batch.

    Thank you very much for your responses. I appreciate your input.

    I also use them Jennifer, on my Steen lever harp. I haven’t had any problems with them, and appreciate anything that makes it easier for my “bi-focal” eyes to see.

    My harp is a LH85 E and it is currently strung with Cancedo gut. I am very satisfied. They wear well, are easier for me to see, and they have survived adverse climate and lots of transporting of the harp this past year (the same strings haven’t been on the harp for an entire year). I would like to continue using them; only the expense keeps me from continuing to replace with Cancedo gut.

    I had concedo strings on my harp for about two years.
