Why Pick Raw Steel?

 

Here at Aura, we used to work exclusively with raw steel before we transitioned over to using nitrided metal (and now also stainless). The main reasoning behind our change to nitrided was due to the lackluster corrosion resistance that raw steel typically exhibits. However, we have recently discovered a long lasting hydrophobic coating that can be applied to the steel, greatly increasing its corrosion resistance. Raw steel Auras are identifiable by their bright timbre, increased responsiveness to touch, and dark blue/green color. 

 

~Pricing~ 

 

Raw steel, as a material, is significantly cheaper than both nitrided and stainless, meaning we can offer these instruments at a reduced price, which should help individuals that would not be able to otherwise purchase an Aura.

 

 

$1,700 for a 7 note tone circle. Each additional note on the the top shell is $100/note up to a limit of 9 notes in the tone circle. At this time, we are not planning on offering bottom notes on raw Auras.
