Roeslau Music Wire

Roeslau (Roslau) Music Wire is a non-coated high carbon steel wire of high tensile strength and high elasticity, specially designed for use in musical instruments. It is also used in critical industrial applications. This music wire is made in and imported from Germany. It is of the highest quality available.

Type: Non-coated high carbon steel wire (C >.8%) of high elasticity, bright polished. Satisfies ASTM A228 standards.
