Description

Three pads infused with Baiji, derived from an orchid. A decoction of Bletilla striata is applied lightly to Silk Strings to keep them clean and supple. Tiny threads are brought back in place, and the life of your strings is extended. It dries almost instantly, and your strings do not need to be adjusted. Often, you will find yourself tuning down..not up.

In regard to Silk Strings for musical instruments there has often been a somewhat cryptic reference to "Chinese Medicine." In fact, this medicine has been standard treatment for internal bleeding for several thousand years.

After a long search, years ago, I came to the conclusion that traditional string makers in China had used this decoction of Bletilla striata along with fish glue and rice starch to stabilize their glue mixtures. This is what is meant in reference to "Traditional Chinese Medicine"
in regard to silk musical strings.

A journey to South Carolina for personal reasons also put me in a way of aquiring the roots of this small orchid. I added the extract soon after and found it to be very effective, and now continue to maintain the flowers and root in my gardens.

I had been including some pads along with the Qin strings for several years now, but now that I have a bigger supply of Bletilla in my garden, I am making this available in my store.
