SIPARIO BIOCARBON® lever synthetic strings are made using a blend of a bio-plastic derived from sugar-cane; they deliver a powerful and bright tone that provides superior acoustic projection and sustain. Color-coded C’s and F’s.
Recmntly developed by Aquila strings for harps. These are not traditional Nylon, nor Fluorocarbon strings. They are a marvelous bio-plastic developed in Northern Italy a couple of years ago. The density is same of gut hence the gauges are the same of gut strings. The moisture absorption is more or less 30 times less than nylon strings; more or less 300 times less than gut.
These strings are can be used on newer 2021 Salvi lever harps such as the Mia, Titan, Hermes and Una, where previously Silkgut strings may have been used.
They could be a very good alterntive to gut strings for vegans or those experiencing frequent string breakages.
