Description

Table of Renaissance Lute Gauges
  Light Medium Heavy
g-1 .40mm .42mm .44mm

 

This Renaissance lute 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 treble strings. 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.

More information about Gamut gut strings, string types, gauges, and string tensions can be found on our articles page. Not finding an answer to your question? Please contact us directly: support@gamutmusic.com.

    First course chanterelle

    My lute was shipped with Nylgut. I immediately changed it to pyramid on the chanterelle. But I wanted something with warmth and sustain, so I choose Gamut Lute Strings. My lute is 60 CM and I choose the heavy with varnish. This string is musically warm and the sustain is quite surprising. I have the lute tuned at F at 440. It's the best sounding string I have heard and brings life to my instrument congratulations Gamut strings on producing a fine product

    Lute G-1 Treble Gut

    A great first course. After using a few of them over the years I recommend wrapping the string around itself 3 times when tying it onto the bridge, and when raising it to pitch, do it slowly throughout the course of a day or so (not cranking it straight to "g").

    G1 treble gut heavy gauge lute string

    I installed the heavy gauge gut treble string on my 8c 59cm renaissance lute and it attained stable tuning faster than the previous nylon string and sounds clear and sweet. Great string!

    For a 59 c mensur go with a heavier string

    The medium and light versions of this string are simply too light for a 59 c mensur 8 c Ren lute. 59 is listed as the upper limit for this string but I think that should be revised down to 58. Go with something more like a 0.45 or better.
