Our History

More Than A Century of String Making

We have been the only maker of strings for Steinway and Sons Pianos (and just about every other fine piano manufacturer) for more than 100 years AND we have been producing the core and wrap wire for most of the guitar string industry for decades.

Our Commitment

The Real Magic of String Making!

The market is full of promises of mystical string design or a new space-age material that will improve your tone or the performance of a string.  We love innovation but it is highly likely that those claims are simply marketing hype.  The real magic is in:

  • The highest quality source metal (we use only superior American steel),
  • Advanced manufacturing technologies that we use in our own wire mills, and
  • Generations of expertise and manufacturing processes to wind strings for your guitars by our craftsmen right here in the United States of America.
This produces the highest quality longest lasting strings,…superior tone, great feel in your hands, strings that stay in tune and perform longer than other brands.
