The renaissance lute g-1 string is made from 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-Gauges 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.

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!
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.
