Real strings are authentic.
A trained musician can create a sound that is alive and inherently organic. The abrupt attack of sound on silence; varied pressure applied to a single long note; the warm resonance of a century-old instrument; the effect of muscles, breathing and real emotion on the sound; a sounds fading to silence: these are the factors that make a sound that is dynamic and irreplaceable.
