This was the brand of e-1 string that he used in conjunction with the Tricolore gut strings to obtain his unique tone. The string is a high-carbon steel with a loop end for attaching to a fine-tuner. The string is available from Gamut Music only in the Medium gauge of 0.26mm (0.066).

I love your products made with care and attention to detail
Great E string, you can find it cheaper but its nice to buy from here and help out Gamut. This string is easy to play and does not whistle very much, feels very smooth under the hand. I have acidic hands so they dont last very long
Although this string sounds quite wonderful (I mean, there's a reason Heifetz used it), it does not last long.
That was the string of the leader Gewandhause orchester Leipzig orchester leader.
