Suitable Strings

VoInventions’s vibration control technology works best when the strings have certain magnetic and electrical properties.  Lately, several electromagnetically compatible commercial brands of strings have been introduced. I’ve tested the strings pictured here. These string types all work with the Vo-96 and are also suited to the Moog Guitar and the Moog Lap Steel. They are available in a variety of gauges.  You can find all these strings at JustStrings.com, one of the few really well-stocked online string sellers.
