The Red Diamond g-1 string is made of the finest beef serosa 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 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.
