HARMONY TUNERS

With tail string attachment there is a relatively long piece of string under the tension between the bridge and the tail. If the tail piece is small, the length of this string segment becomes even bigger.

This string’s portion has its own random resonance frequency. This means that these six small strings can start resonating either supporting or working against the main sound pitch when the guitar is played. This sound doesn’t have huge volume but with sensitive guitar, it can be clearly heard.

To make this effect working for better resulting sound, we came up with what we call Harmony Tuners. These little bone blocks that can slide alone strings are used to tune the string segments between the bridge and the tail piece to the 6th harmonic of the open main string. Tuners are kept in place be the tension of the string and the tuning process is surprisingly easy. As the result, little strings produce tones that are perfect 5th of main open strings and therefore make the entire sound palette perfectly aligned.

Whatever you play now results into very pleasant sound with great sustain and balanced overtones.
