Diapason Gut Strings

(Showing 48 of 76)

Diapason gut strings are extra-long (96", 240cm) beef serosa strings made for special use on instruments like archultes, theorbos, ​​lautenwercks, and harpsichords.

For diapason gut we usually select strings that have a high degree of twist because these strings are not intended to have a lot of tension put on them, as would be the case for treble gut.

The strings are a medium to high single-twist construction, and the gauges from .50mm to 1.00mm correspond to our treble gut strings except with a little more twist; the gauges from 1.00mm to 2.00mm correspond to our Lyon gut strings. The diapason gut is processed to be flexible and responsive.

Use our String Calculators to find the correct strings for your instrument. You can find Specific String Tensions here.
