Thread Name: How old are steel strings?
Subject: RE: How old are steel strings?
Thanks again. Murray's point sounds good to me. Making musical instruments is a technological task and must be based in available materials and technology.

Are we about to pin down the time when steel strings beacame seriously available? If so what was the consequence for the music so produced?

Thanks again
