    Who makes Alembic's strings? If not, who else makes a hex-cored elliptical wrapped steel string?
     
  2. I heard somewhere that Fender makes Alembic strings ;)!

    Sorry I couldn't resist. Have a Merry Christmas!

    Yowza! Ain't that the $64,000 question? I know there are
    only a few string manufacturers. Most "brands" are re-packaged
    versions of these few makers.
    I'm guessing a high-end bunch like Alembic makes their own CX-3's.

    I dunno if they're elliptical, but GHS makes a "Pressure-Wound" NICKEL set...
    SIT "Silencers" are compression-wound also. They are however (like the GHS) NICKEL...
