Can’t comment on who actually makes the Hauser strings but who makes Dr. Junger strings.
Pyramid produces all kind of strings under the company name Pyramid Junger GmbH. Dr. Junger was founded by the board member Karl Junger in 1991 as small enterprise dedicated to specialities for lute and guitar. When he passed away in 2001, his sons took over Pyramid whereas his daughter keeps his heritage alive at Dr. Junger. The joint production facility is the Pyramid factory in Bubenreuth, Bavaria/Frankonia.
Thanks es335 for the comment. In fact, my 1st guess was Dr. Junger followed by Pyramid, or maybe the both of them together, but I did not want to tip my hat in the thread. It's just much more fun to cast a line out and then see what comes up!
I was aware that there was some kind of Pyramid/Dr. Junger family relationship as well as of a geographical proximity to the Hausers. And coincidentally, I had just had a set of Aristona 411 trebles on one of my guitars, and thus was able to note that the 411 trebles are very clear in the same way as are Hauser trebles, and this set my mind to speculation.
Not too long ago, I tried some Romero PepeSr strings. They too have a kind of clearness to the trebles and the bass strings are rather nicely supportive. It might be that PepeSrs could be a less costly substitute for Hauser strings for some of us, but I am betting that some folks with an acute sense of hearing will easily tip the scales towards Hauser, Dr. Junger and Pyramid.
Thanks again for filling in some of the cracks to the puzzle!
