KAPLAN (D’Addario)


Kaplans are identifiable by the white thread with black spiral at the ball end.  The winding at the peg end is color coded for pitch, and tension.   Heavy tension has a secondary orange band.  The G and G strings have a stranded steel core designed to give richer sound.  While these are some of the less expensive tungsten strings on the market, they do not have as strong an audience here as other tungsten strings.  They may be a step up from some chrome-wound strings.
