Experimental String Pics


Below you will find the microscopic pictures of various important iterations of strings I have made. These include strings of all different types of materials, construction techniques, and sizes. They are labeled with the trial number as depicted in my own notes, the material type, core method used, and qin string number (1-7), along with which strings are currently my best iterations for that particular size, material, and core style of string. Not all of my trials will make it to this page and my page for data collection on these strings – only the strings that have survived the string making process and have been well tested will be represented. I will continuously update this gallery as I expand into new materials, covering various composites, core structures, and wrappings. To see the actual harmonic data and analysis of these strings, you can go to the Experimental Strings page for more details and info.
