The low loss coefficient and high elastic energy storage of amorphous metals may provide novel opportunities in the design of stringed musical instruments. To produce prototypes for metallic glass music wire, bulk metallic glass pre-forms were reheated into the supercooled liquid region and stretched into wires. Investigations of these wires’ geometrical, mechanical, and physical properties are reported. The process is relatively simple and could be practical for producing continuous wire. A theoretical analysis shows the importance of the interaction between heating power input, radiative and convective cooling, and area reduction in determining the wire’s final properties.
