What are the benefits of using a multifilament string?
Multifilament strings have a higher number of individual fibers woven together, which results in a softer and more forgiving string bed. They are more comfortable to play with and tend to produce less tension loss over time.
What are the benefits of using a monofilament string?
Monofilament strings are made from a single strand of material, which results in a stiffer and more durable string bed. They are more durable and tend to maintain tension better than multifilament strings.
