This is a combination package of the Red Diamond A-3 and E-4 strings. The strings have high twist gut cores for flexibility and long sustain, seasoned carefully and then wound with copper wire for a rich, low register. Red Diamond string gauges are based on the popular Medium range from our Academie line of bass strings.
Red Diamond strings are designed to satisfy the needs of active, professional musicians who need that real gut sound for jazz, bluegrass, blues, rockabilly, and other musical forms that require a strong bottom end to the sound and the stylistic stage presence of an upright bass. Red Diamond strings are the solution for worry-free durability whatever the conditions of the performance situation.
We are confident that you will find these strings affordable, reliable, and durable.
Red Diamond strings are manufactured in the USA exclusively by Gamut Music. 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.

I recently ordered Red Diamond E&A strings and installed them yesterday. I'm very pleased with them. I'm a long time gut-string user and over the years I've used a ton of different strings - new old stock, currently available brands and everything else. I play jazz, blues, bluegrass and so forth (not a baroque musician, although I do get the urge for bowing from time to time:) With the commercial brands like LaBella, Lenzner, Gotz and others. I've usually found that the G and A strings will be usable, but the E and D will be thuddy and lack clear pitch. I assume this is because the thicker the gut string or gut core, the more difficult it is to make a good string. Your Pistoy D is the only consistently good and reliable plain D I know of, although you can feed a family of 4 for a week for the same price as the one string :) !. I've used your silver-plated lower strings and liked them, but I must say that I like the Red Diamond E&A just as well, and appreciate the lower price. So kudos for offering a good, and more affordable product for us gut string addicts! Thanks!
