About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

Handmade is a word that can be used more and more seldom. Yet in Copenhagen lies a company that upholds a tradition for world-class handmade strings for violin, viola, cello and double bass.

About 1950 Danish cellist Jarl Hansen wanted more from his cello than gut strings could provide. As a member of the Royal Danish Opera Orchestra he became increasingly interested in string quality and sound, and for years he experimented in his spare time – until 1956, when he was ready to start his own company, Jargar Strings.

At Jargar we have no string industry. We practice string craft. Our skilled string makers each finish about 60 perfect strings a day with care, dedication and professional pride to produce the unique and characteristic warm and brilliant sound of our strings.

What Jarl Hansen developed was a steel core based string, wound with thin threads of pure or alloyed metal. These new strings had a warm and brilliant tone and furthermore much greater stability, durability and strength than gut strings. These qualities quickly made Jargar strings highly popular throughout the classical music world and still Jargar provides musicians around the world with handmade, powerful and uniquely  responsive strings.
