Beautiful Things From Recycled Instrument Strings

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Where do your used instrument strings come from?

We have many friends and family that are musicians, they now recycle all their used strings with Encore. There are a few music shops in Nova Scotia that save all the strings they change out to be recycled too. This gives an ample supply of stock although some types of strings are less commonly replaced.

How do you get the strings to look so clean and shiny?

Some strings are more soiled than others. I have a 'string pot' for boiling the very soiled ones, others only need a good rub with an alcohol swab before they're transformed for their Encore.

What kind of strings do you use?

I find a use for all strings, even piano wire. I will also use pieces of instruments or their cases instead of seeing them go to the landfill.
