  Gauge Approximate Tension

This is a combination package of the Red Diamond g-1 and d-2 strings. They are made of the finest beef serosa (gut) from the green fields of Ireland, twisted in our famous Lyon gut style, then wrapped with nylon to protect the string from adverse environmental conditions. The nylon is polished smooth for slick playing action and long life. 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 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.

    Good, but not what I had in mind

    I am a classical player, and use the bow. These strings, while of excellent quality, are wrapped in nylon and do not respond well to the bow. I would look at plain gut strings if you play with the bow (which I have also bought through Gamut Music and do enjoy). I wish that the website explicitly mentioned that they do not have great bow response, so I would not have accidentally bought them. If you are a jazz, rockabilly, etc. player, however, these strings are lovely. Very resonant and clean tone. I have kept my set in case I need to play jazz in the future.
