The most recognizable feature under a piano's lid is the strings. Over 200 strings are kept in A440 pitch by German made Diamond tuning pins, which are anchored into the pinblock. All of our strings are made from the finest Swedish steel. The bass range strings are coiled with copper. Brass agraffes guide the strings to the tuning pins. Agraffes need to be replaced because they wear with time and are susceptible to breaking. We use the same strings, agraffes, and tuning pins as Steinway.
