Copper Gimped Gut Strings

(Showing 48 of 54)

This is a standard length (48", 120cm) string. We use two different types of wire for Gimped Stringscopper and silver. The copper wire is a little lighter than silver, so the resulting strings are slightly larger in diameter than the equivalent silver gimped string; and the copper makes the string slightly brighter in tone. Silver, being a heavier material, allows the string to have more weight with less gut, making these strings thinner than the equivalent copper gimped string; and since silver is a softer metal than copper, silver gimped strings are softer and more flexible.

Gimped strings are gauged by the equivalent diameter system. This means that a given string is equal in weight to a certain gut diameter but the actual diameter of the string is smaller due to the added weight of the wire. A gimped string may be gauged at =1.50mm but the actual diameter of the string is 1.10 mm. The thinness and wire gives a bright tone.
