偽物のエリクサーを徹底的にチェックしてみました。 - TC楽器 - TCGAKKI

Hello.


Strings Osanai. (Repairman Osanai)!It's been a while since I've talked about strings.First of all, where do you buy your strings?


I think there are many places to buy strings, such as at a music shop or by mail order.

 

I remember that there was a problem with mail-order strings that became a hot topic for a while.

Yes, that's right.

 


Fake strings!

 

 

There are bad people who manufacture strings that imitate famous brands such as Elixir, D'Addario, Ernie Ball, etc. and sell them on major mail order sites such as AMAZN, or on flea market apps such as MegaCalli. This is really wrong.

 

 

This time, we received a report from a person concerned.Fake elixirand I would like to compare it with the real one.

 

 

Let's start with the exterior.

 

Can you tell which is the fake?

 

 

The left one is the real one.The right one is a fake.

 

At a quick glance, they look exactly alike, but when compared in detail, there are many differences.

The color of the blue part is lighter on the fake.


It is hard to tell from the photo, but when you touch the real one with your hand, the real one is rough and rough, but the fake one is smooth and smooth.

 

Left: Real, Right: Fake

 

The material of the box is not well reproduced.

Other than that, the font is different in general.

They are thinner or thicker and totally different.

 

The thickness of the letters on the surface of NICKEL PLATED STEEL is different, and the color behind the letters is also completely different.
The counterfeit one is very dark.

 

The silver sticker on the back is also different.

Left: Genuine Right: Fake

 

The real one reflects light and glows, but the fake one does not.


It is easy to tell that the fake is a low quality seal.

However, I wonder if they even make stickers. I think so, too.

 

As you can see, there are quite a few differences.

 

Let's open it and take a look inside.

 

Left: Genuine Right: Fake

 

The fake one has a different font and lighter color than the original.

Left: Genuine Right: Fake


The folds of the real ones are straight, while the fakes are folded roughly and bent.

The invisible parts of the folds are not so important.

 

Then, let's take a look at the strings of the main body.!!!

 

Speaking of elixirs, they are coated!

I think everyone buys for this.

 

Left: Real Right: Fake

 

But this fake is not coated at all!

The difference is so obvious.

 

It feels just like a very cheap string.


This is something that people who normally use elixirs will immediately notice if they touch them.

 

That's why I looked at them and compared them, but this fake one is really the worst.


It is a fake, and it looks like they are trying to cheat you.By the way, this counterfeit is sold at the major mail order site AMAZ◯NThey were purchased at


The price was a little lower than the list price.

 

It would be great if the fake products were eliminated, but it's not that easy.


The best way to prevent this is for buyers to avoid buying counterfeit products.


The best way to be sure is to buy from a reliable music store or distributor.(We look forward to seeing you at our store.)


Let's all take measures to prevent the sale of counterfeit goods, believing that if counterfeit goods are no longer sold, the number of bad dealers will also decrease!

 

That's all.Strings Osanaiwas

アコギ弦ですが偽物が来ました。
触り心地に違和感があり、拡大接写したところコーティングがされていませんでした。
また、ラウンド弦(3〜6弦)は巻く方向が逆になっています。
パッケージがほぼ見分けがつかない感じですが、フォントが微妙に違います。

通販などでは公式の画像を使って偽物を送り届けたりするとは思うので取り扱ってる会社で選ばないといけませんし、メルカリなどのフリマでも横行してしまっています。
プレイヤーは本物と偽物を見分ける眼や知識を持たなくてはならず大変なご時世です。
ブリッジなどでも工房に換装依頼をし、偽物を乗せてしまいネット掲載されてしまうともしかしたら偽物が本物と誤認してしまうこともあると思います。

通販サイトの商品画像だけで見抜くのは難しそうですね。
色やざらつきはともかく、目を皿のようにして文字を見るしかないでしょうか。
