This material, with precise diameter consistency, offers at a low cost, the following advantages: a great playing comfort, a reliable tuning steadiness, a longer life. The rectification process makes it possible to obtain strings that present a perfect round shape and to offer a significant number of different diameters (otherwise the choice would be limited to the diameters currently available from the nylon suppliers. Their polished surface gives a precise touch and a round sound that is particularly sought by musicians while playing early music.
