Elves are renowned for their musical abilities, for the haunting, complex and shifting melodies that come so easily to them. Strings woven of elf hair seem to retain some of the Elves‘ gift for music, imbuing the notes of the instrument with a clear and vibrant tone. Equipping a Musical instrument with strings made of elf hair grants the bard a +1 circumstance bonus on all Perform skill checks. This bonus extends to Perform skill checks made in the use of a bardic music ability, such as countersong. Seamus weaves these strings from hair he buys from elves who could use some extra money and are pleased to do something to help musicians. He pays 20% of his selling price for elven hair, though he has gone as high as 50% for the hair of a particularly famous elf, or even one with unusually coloured hair.
