zither

 

The "Lenzner" brand
Our company attracted a great deal of attention for manufacturing zither strings right from the start. Because we work closely with well-known makers and involve outstanding zither players, we are able to provide a range of goods to meet any requirements and wishes. In this way we have managed to make the free strings for all zither applications, even the quintzither, with metal wound round the basic material. We attach a great deal of importance to the quality of our fingerboard strings. They are balanced in texture, provide the right sound at the fret and are melodious, even in the high registers. We have experienced experts who know what needs doing, as the quality of our products is based on detailed work. Exact workmanship, using only the very best materials and stringent quality checks guarantee consistently good quality for our music strings. Our theoretical expertise and many years of experience also enable us to meet individual customer requests within a very short time.

"Lenzner" Zither Strings
- Fisoma Nylon -

They have a core made of pure nylon silk. They produce a very soft, silky tone and allow people to play in an individual style with plenty of nuances. So they are ideally suitable for music-making at home. If necessary, we can also supply the 5 high accompanying strings as gut strings.

"Lenzner" Zither Strings
- Soloklang -

They also have a core made of pure nylon silk. But they do produce a strong, full sound, and allow performers to play dynamically and very loudly if necessary. But the material used still makes it easy to play the instrument.

"Lenzner" Zither Strings
- Nylon with a steel core-

They are mainly conceived for people playing with an electro-magnetic sound pick-up. The core is made of steel wiring, which is surrounded with nylon silk according to a special principle. This design allows these strings to produce sounds like pure nylon strings although they have steel wire inserts.
