Savarez 540R Alliance HT Classic Normal Tension
The classical guitar strings sets Savarez 540R Alliance HT Classic Normal Tension are made up :
KF ALLIANCE plain composite trebles (so called carbon strings),
HT CLASSIC stabilon multifilament (specifically treated nylon) wound basses with rust protected silver plated metal.
These strings are the result of extensive research and high technologies requiring high-tech raw materials.
1 - THE KF ALLIANCE TREBLES
These strings are made of the now well-known composite monofilament ALLIANCE KF (some people call them carbon strings) , exclusive to Savarez. Years of research have been necessary to adapt this material to the demands of the musicians and to get an outstanding product for music uses.
The use of KF ALLIANCE material first introduced by Savarez, changed the world of guitar. The strings were first made of gut then made of nylon. The trebles are now made of a high technological material, very different from nylon : different elasticity, higher density, further longevity thanks to the very specific cristallinity grade.
In fact we have been working on the following topics to guarantee the technological and acoustic qualities of this material to make it convenient for music strings :
- Tensile strength,
- Mastery of the elasticity and elongation,
- Control of the geometrical regularity of the diameter for a perfect intonation.
The gauge obtained is absolutely regular without resorting to a mechanical polishing. The string gauge control is done throughout the manufacturing process. The last laser control is done when packaging,
Solving the fraying phenomenon (defibrillation): typically bound to any composite material, due to the breaking of the links between molecules. This phenomenon leads to the appearance of small superficial threads (until the string breaks) under a given tension.
We do actually master these various parameters. Thus we have the sufficient knowledge to adapt the material to the use of harmonic strings for other instruments: violin, harp, lute, etc.
2 - THE ALLIANCE/HT CLASSIC SET WOUND BASSES
Silver-plated wound strings are made according to a more traditional design and elaborated technology to offer a fast response, a brighter and more brilliant sound. They are rust protected.
They are stiffer (giving the feeling of a stiff string, not to be confused with elasticity) and allow a powerful playing.
They offer more resistance under the right hand fingers while facilitating the left hand velocity.
- Reach and brilliant tone,
- Great projection,
- Percussive sound,
- An accurate and quick response,
- Sound and power.
