Designed for use on the Brasilian Cavaquinho, you’ve never heard a sound like this, simply because previously it did not exist.
This set gives a unique feeling and a strong, consistent sound. Until recently, it was necessary to increase a string’s gauge to get a lower-pitched note. But increasing the string’s diameter also increases internal dampening. That makes the string less bright, less responsive and more muffled; the thicker the string, the duller the sound. Our revolutionary new approach, unique to us, changes the specific weight of the material, increasing it progressively to leave the gauge almost unchanged.
The result is amazing: instruments sound brighter, more powerful and more responsive through the entire range of the fretboard. The strings also maintain their intonation better, because thicker strings need to be fretted harder, pulling them further out of tune.
