Some nice little videos from the Hong Kong Harp Centre of a tour round the Bow Brand Factory.
When you get a string out of the packet, it's easy to not realise the process it's taken to get to you.
I had the pleasure of a good long tour round the Bow Brand factory some years ago which was amazing. If you ever get the chance, do go and visit them. It's brilliant to see how skillful all the wonderful people who make our strings are... the smell is quite something though! The chemicals not the workers!!!
The whole process is on this video produced by Bow Brand in 2010, which for some bizarre reason, sounds like it is narrated by a time traveling man from the 1940s.
