Because of new trends, the most recent sets (ALLIANCE/HT CLASSIC, ALLIANCE CORUM, NEW CRITAL CORUM) having the same tension are available under the name of “high tension”.
Trebles strings are the result of the major and definitely relevant innovation in guitar strings since many centuries.
SAVAREZ took profit of the discovery of a new synthetic material early in the 20th century : the nylon. It definitely took the place of the gut which had been used on musical baroque instruments and on classical guitars since their origin.
SAVAREZ brought two major improvements never offered to the musicians before and that have completely changed the world of guitar:
In each tension the strings are made of nylon manufactured according to a specific technology. This nylon is subjected to specific treatments in order to master the elongation, the elasticity, the cristallinity and relaxation properties.
After checking its gauge, the string is rectified according to a technology which became highly elaborated thanks to the modern production process. The string is progressively and delicately modified to get a round shape and a regular gauge throughout its length. The surface is slightly polished in order to get a smooth touch while keeping a slight rough touch many guitarists, attached to it, are looking for.
The NEW CRISTAL CORUM strings made of high quality nylon have met such great success and have brought such an improvement that this material is used for all the SAVAREZ sets made up nylon trebles.
"The Music That Maton Made" Hardback book
From a small backyard workshop on the outskirts of Melbourne, Maton Guitars has grown into a truly inspiring Australian success story.
In 1946, Bill May crafted a guitar in his Melbourne garage that he wanted the world to hear and to play. In a matter of years, it was in the hands of Elvis Presley on film. Later, a Maton played the riff that defined a generation on the Rolling Stones' 'Gimme Shelter'. Today, Maton are an essential part of music culture in Australia and around the world.
This is not only a book for guitar lovers — it's an intimate family history and an essential part of Australian music history. Compiling over ten years of research, and over two years in production, this book is as well-crafted and family-owned as Maton guitars themselves.
Go behind-the-scenes to meet the artisan guitar makers. Read the stories behind the songs created with Maton guitars. And go backstage to meet the bands and musicians that have, with a Maton in hand, shaped our musical world.
Packed full of interviews with the greats — from jazz legend George Golla to guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel; from Archie Roach, and The Wiggles, to Daniel Johns, Paul Kelly, and Josh Homme, and many more ...
Published to coincide with Maton's 70th anniversary, The Music That Maton Made is a comprehensive, full-colour tribute to a home-grown guitar range that has been embraced by famous musicians and guitar enthusiasts around the world.View full product details
