|Table of Baroque Lute Gauges|
This Baroque lute octave string (48", 120cm) is made from beef gut that undergoes a special process to make it as hard and durable as possible. Only the very best, most pure ribbons of beef gut are selected for use in the lute top string, or chanterelle. It is available with a natural finish, or can be varnished at an additional charge.
Standard gauge lute strings are available in three gauges, light, medium and heavy. If you require other gauges, please order from the Custom Gauged Strings section of the string store.
Academie strings are manufactured in the USA by Gamut Music, Inc., a leader in the revival of early music strings and instruments. Gut strings are not intended to be used with fine tuners or string adjusters and those devices should be removed before installing the gut string on the instrument.
