Play the High Notes

International Edu News

A new set of bass strings have been developed that helps a guitarist to play the high notes. The new strings allow for improved tone when playing high up the neck of the instrument. The lumped construction technique has only been applied for piano strings before, according to Dr Jonathan Kemp of the University of St Andrews' School of Physics and Astronomy. In conventional bass guitars, the full range of the instrument could not be used due to thickness of strings. Dr Kemp said that normal bass strings can be played far up the neck but the lowest pitch strings sound bad and are poor at harmonising with higher notes.The research found that raising the mass near the bridge produces a string with close to zero in-harmonicity for low mode numbers.
