Welcome to Lenzner Saitenmanufaktur

Strings have been made in the Markneukirchen area for more than 250 years.

Based on this long tradition, we, the company "Lenzner Saitenmanufaktur OHG" in Erlbach, manufacture musical strings of all kinds.

The strings we produce are of the highest quality and are manufactured by our experienced specialists. Our assortment ranges from strings for bowed and plucked instruments to strings for lyre, kantele and harp to technical strings. This is supplemented by special and custom-made products for special applications.

Zither strings of the "Lenzner Musiksaiten" brand in the "Soloklang" and "Fisoma" versions are highly valued, particularly among experts, but gut strings for double bass of the "Lenzner Supersolo" brand are also highly regarded.

We also specialize in the production of strings for chord zither, strings for hammered dulcimer, kantele and lyre, as well as strings for music therapy.
Strings for guitar, mandolin and mandola are produced under the "Fisoma" brand. We also manufacture strings for violin, viola, cello and double bass in the specifications "Quinton" and "Goldtwistle".

Craftsmanship that you can hear. And feels.

The production of musical strings has a tradition of over 200 years in the Markneukirchen area. The origins of the company date back to 1900, when Gustav Lenzner founded a string spinning mill to meet the growing demand for wound strings at the time.

Since then, strings have been manufactured in the same premises at Schulstraße 18 in Erlbach without interruption. Although the company was nationalized during the GDR era, it was re-established in 1991 immediately after reunification and has been trading under the name "Lenzner Saitenmanufaktur Reinhard Renz e.K." since 2005.

At Lenzner Saitenmanufaktur, specialists, some of whom have over 30 years of professional experience, exclusively produce quality strings by hand to meet the highest demands. The company has the most modern string spinning technology and can provide products for all applications by using special materials that are unusual for string production.

The company's strengths lie in its decades of experience in calculating strings, incorporating not only the laws of physics but also the traditional, subjective empirical values from a long tradition. In this way, it is always possible to produce strings with the best tonal and technical properties, even if this often seems complicated due to the unfavorable conditions of the instrument.

The clientele for custom-made products that has developed over many years mainly buys strings for historical string and plucked instruments, lyres, kantele, harp and zither, music therapy devices and other special sound bodies. However, strings for instruments from distant countries such as the aoud, saz, Cretan lyre, cimbalom, bouzouki, Celtic harp, balalaika, domra and many more can also be supplied without any problems.

The brands "Lenzner SOLOKLANG" for zither and gut strings "Lenzner SUPERSOLO" for double bass enjoy an exceptionally good reputation among experts. Strings of the renowned brand "FISOMA" guarantee quality and reliability in standard stringing for all stringed and plucked instruments.
