The Strings Keep Going

I think it has been two weeks since I did a complete update on the Harp String Patch Test.

Here is a shot down the patch test area.

Here is another angle.

As you can see, the strings are wearing okay, except for that pesky Savarez F, that was Blue that wore off immediately, so I had to use a Sharpie so I could see it well enough to practice. The Sharpie is also wearing off. The string is fraying and starting to go false. Of all my patch test strings, this is the only string to NOT use. Yuck.

Here are some close ups of all the strings where they intersect with the mechanism.

Everything seems to be normal as far as wear and pitting goes. All are staying in tune pretty well. I have definite favorites by now.
