One of the things I enjoy fooling around with is stringing. Within the confines of what the soundboard is built for, vibrating length and uniform tension. There’s always lots of discussion on gut strings and wires. For the obvious reason that there lots of variety in types, finishes, cores, wraps, and all that happy stuff.
All of that said- there never seems to be any discussion of nylon. Other than monofilament nylon for instruments is different than fishing line. So is there any opinion out there on who, or what, makes a better sounding nylon? Also what happened to nylagut? It seemed to be a hot topic for a little while and then disappeared without any evaluation from anyone.
In case anyone is wondering- I have an antique pedal harp (no- I’m not re-stringing that one) and 3 folk harps of modern manufacture. I was into wire harps for a couple of years and really enjoyed the heck out of them. I may get back into wire someday.
