    This Is One of the best strings in the world made by Francesco Sansone in naples , Italy.
    I invite you to try them personally. You can order them directly from the manufacturer on facebook, as long as you write to Francesco Sansone.

  2. Would you care to write a review? What exactly makes them "one of the best strings in the world" in your mind?

    Strings choices are a very personal thing, so one's "best" could turn out to be another's "worst". We'd love to know more about them before making the plunge.

    yes it is true the strings are a very personal thing but as far as my experience is concerned these are the best. They are soft and more elastic than others, they allow you to play in a more comfortable and natural way, they are built entirely by hand by a craftsman and this I believe makes the difference compared to the ropes made with automatic machinery.
     
  4. Thanks for your perspective.

    I can already tell they're not for me. I'll stick with the "ropes made with automatic machinery".

    I advise you to try them at least once, then everyone has their own tastes and needs

  7. A question...

    What makes "handmade" strings superior to those that are wound by a hi-tech computer-controlled precision winder?

    How much are they and do they have a website?
    What gauges do they come in?
    Do they offer round (and) or hex core?
    Are they long enough for 36" scale basses
    Do they also make flats?
    Do they send worldwide and if so, how much will they do that for?

    I found four string sets in an Italian online shop for €29,00 (US $32,00).

    However, “build entirly by hand” does not sound like my cup of tea. I cannot even imagine any advantage over machine wounded strings. Rather in opposite - but just my 2 cents.
