Wire and wire-mesh plating
The production of string wires has been a part of our tradition since 1760. All renowned piano manufacturers use our copper wire of the brand Degen-GOLD for their bass strings. Degen-GOLD copper spinning wire captivates with its special purity, softness and full sound.
Special tarnish protection tremendously increases oxidation resistance.
The surfaces of strings for string instruments and guitars are subject to especially high mechanical stress. Rust, loss of sound and deteriorating playability are the result. For premium strings, we have developed a metal coating that combines tinning and nickel plating. This coating protects the string a lot longer against rust and loss of quality. The eyes listen too if the wire string is gold-plated.
