Sets ALLIANCE CORUM

Even more sophisticated: The second revolution

500AR, 500AJ, 500ARJ sets are made up of:

  • - KF ALLIANCE plain composite trebles monofilament (so called carbon strings),
  • - CORUM stabilon multifilament (specifically treated nylon) wound basses with rust protected silver plated metal

The 500ARH set is made up of:

  • KF ALLIANCE plain composite trebles monofilament,
  • CORUM wound polished basses offering a flat surface.

The 500RH3 is only made up of 3 polished basses (CORUM wound).

This set is meant for guitarists who do not need to change their trebles strings or who play New Cristal trebles.

The basses are the same than those included in the 500ARH set.

The ALLIANCE range sets are also made up of KF ALLIANCE trebles (they are coupled with HT CLASSIC wound basses).

The CORUM basses offers a perfect balance coupled with the KF ALLIANCE trebles, exclusive to Savarez.
The NEW CRISTAL/CORUM range sets are also made up of CORUM basses (they are coupled with NEW CRISTAL trebles).

1 - KF ALLIANCE Trebles

Research:

These strings are made of the now well-known composite monofilament ALLIANCE KF (some people call them carbon strings) , exclusive to Savarez .Years of research have been necessary to adapt this material to the demands of the musicians and to get an outstanding product : a revolution for the guitar players !

The use of KF ALLIANCE material first discovered and introduced by Savarez, changed the world of guitar. The strings were first made of gut then made of nylon. The trebles are now made of a high technological material, very different from nylon : different elasticity, higher density, further longevity thanks to the very specific cristallinity grade.

In fact, we have been working on the following topics to guarantee the technological and acoustic quality of these one of a king strings:

  • Tensile strength,
  • Mastery of the elasticity and elongation,
  • control of the geometrical regularity of the diameter for a perfect intonation. The gauge obtained is absolutely regular without resorting to a mechanical polishing. The string gauge control is done throughout the manufacturing process. The last laser control is done when packaging,
  • Solving the fraying phenomenon (defibrillation): typically bound to any composite material which is due to the breaking of the links between molecules leading to the appearance of small superficial threads (until the string breaks) under a given tension.

 

We do actually master these various parameters. Thus we have the sufficient knowledge to adapt the material to the use of harmonic strings for other instruments : violin, harp, lute, etc.

Specification:

Technological characteristics:

The KF ALLIANCE fibre has the same density and elongation properties as gut. Its density is higher than the polyamide fibres.

The KF ALLIANCE strings are thinner than the nylon ones. They can resist a 35kg tension (harp). The low internal frictions between the molecules increase the durability of the string beside a sustained sound.

The G-3rd string provides a great homogeneous transition between the B-2nd and the D-4th. It ideally balances with the other strings of the set in terms of sound quality. It is no longer necessary to use a G wound string to balance the set

Acoustic qualities:

  • - Bright tone and clean sound,
  • - Richness of sound,
  • - Very extensive possibilities,
  • - Incomparable power and projection of the sound
  • - An even greater long lasting sound
  • - Very clear sound on the high and very high positions.

The KF ALLIANCE also make up the CORUM ALLIANCE sets in which they are coupled with CORUM basses (cf. the CORUM ALLIANCE range).

2 - Corum wound basses: The basses revolution

The second fundamental SAVAREZ innovation

These silver plated wound basses represent a second revolution in the world of guitar (KF ALLIANCE composite fibre trebles being the first revolution). They are the only one to offer an exceptional flexibility associated with the proper stiffness. They also offer an improved pliability compared to the traditional strings.

Our technological discoveries enable us to manufacture strings of greater pliability unlike anything else in the world, offering a very quick and accurate response.

Their flexibility allows the musician to build his own sound, to create many other colours of sounds and nuances.

Their design has been based on a reduction of the internal frictions. The string hardly vibrates, the sound lasts longer at a higher level.

The CORUM basses offers a perfect balance coupled with the KF ALLIANCE trebles, exclusive to Savarez.

Feelings:

When playing, the CORUM basses high tension, blue colour, offer a normal tension string feeling (ease in playing without extra efforts). They possess all the characteristics of a high tension string (velocity, support, quick response, etc).

Characteristics:

  • Flexibility,
  • Quick response to be compared to a high tension string,
  • Brilliant, accurate and direct sound,
  • Clean sound,
  • Longer sustain and volume,
  • Ease in playing,
  • Tremendous increase in sound modulation and expressive possibilities (expressiveness, nuances, more sound colours).

In the 500ARH et 500RH3 sets, the basses are wound and polished.

The CORUM basses also make up the NEW CRISTAL/CORUM range sets in which they are coupled with NEW/CRYSTAL trebles.

3 - Polished Corum basses of the 500ARH and 500RH3 sets

Round wound CORUM basses, polished fine silver, keeping the same high flexibility and outstanding characteristics of the unpolished CORUM basses.

Thanks to a very special technology they keep the technological characteristics and acoustics properties offered by the round wound strings.

  • Their durability is higher than any other polished string.
  • The polishing eliminates the left hand squeaks.
  • Because of their colourful sound, they are ideal for recordings and amplified performances on stage.

Specifications:

  • Flexibility,
  • Speed of the response to be compared to a high tension string,
  • No left hand squeak,
  • Rich, direct and accurate sound.
  • Clarity,
  • Sustained sound and higher volume level,
  • Ease in playing,
  • Larger possibilities in sound modulation and expressiveness.

4 - Tensions

The CORUM/ALLIANCE set comes in:

  • normal tension or high tension(500AR, 500AJ),
  • mixed tension normal/high (500ARJ set).This set offers comfort and ease in playing, it is made up: KF ALLIANCE trebles coming in normal tension, red colour,
  • CORUM basses (flexible) coming in high tension, blue colour, offering when playing the feeling of a normal tension string and giving the sounding board a higher tension which facilitates its vibration.

the sets made up polished basses (500ARH and 500RH3) only come in normal tension (red).
