Handmade, custom wound Clavinet Strings!
Looking for fresh harmonic popping tone from your Clavinet?
Vintage Vibe Clavinet strings are custom wound by DR Handmade Strings in New Jersey, USA. Each string is handmade, utilizing slower winding speeds than other manufacturing methods in order to create better compression of the wire wraps. More windings and a tighter fit result in a tone fuller in body and depth. The end product is rich in long-lasting harmonics and vibrant definition; from the moment you first play on these strings, you can hear the difference.
Vintage Vibe is also the only electric piano company to achieve a more consistent tone and volume between string sizes .022 and .009 by including .011 gauge strings for keys F3 - G3. This innovation is to ensure that you the customer have the most killer sounding clavinet possible!
Add Clavigel, our yarn-less string dampening system to your cart and not only enjoy the rich and vibrant tone of your new strings, but do so in a fraction of the time of traditional restringing and without a headache.
Strings are sold individually or as a complete set [62 strings].

Do you use these strings in your Vibanet?
Yes, exclusively so. We are very proud of how our strings sound and perform.
Is it really hard to change strings, I'm a bit nervous?
If you restring using our proprietary Clavigel yarn-less dampening system, it is actually the opposite of difficult. The notion of dread when it comes to changing strings is due to weaving the dampening yarn, which is absolutely dreadful. This procedure is now a thing of the past, luckily. Restringing can now be a fun project that yields amazing and nearly instantaneous results. We just need to educate people on the new technology.
