Longueur des cordes (scale) classées par fabricants.

Recommended Posts

Bonjour

Par hasard, je suis tombé sur un post qui répertorie la longueur des cordes (scale) classées par fabricants.

Super cool cette info ! 

Ce qui est dommage, c'est que ça ne donne pas d'indication sur la longueur utile...


Sur ma Dingwall, j'ai un B en 37', j'ai essayé D'addario et Labella (pourtant plus que 37') mais la longueur utile n'est pas bonne et l'installation n'est pas possible. Il y a bien 38' ou plus de cordes mais sur ces B, il y avait 2 épaisseurs de filage et la 2ième épaisseur, qui donne donc la bonne épaisseur, ne commence que vers 36,5'. Du coup, ça fait que l’âme se loge bien dans la mécanique et le premier filage démarre bien avant le sillet mais le deuxième démarre pendant la premiere case... inutilisable donc...

La longueur donnée c'est (si j'ai bien compris) de la boucle à la soie.

The "Winding Length" is the measurement of the string from the Back of the Ball End to Silk or to the First Taper on strings with no silk where the string starts to get thinner (B / E / A strings).

il y a quelques 39 et 40 dans la liste.

Les Labella que tu as essayé, elles étaient bien marquées: XL scale ? Elles sont données pour 38.

J'en ai monté un jeux sur ma Taka TB 10, çà marche, mais la Dingwall semble encore plus grande.

Effectivement, comme tu dis:

Je viens de mesurer mes LaBella 760 N - XL scale sur ma basse.

De la soie à la soie j'ai environ 93,5 cm soit 36,8' alors qu'elles sont donnée pour 38 '.
