We have bundled together the most popular kinds of Treble Viol strings and offer them in a standard set for ease of ordering.

The set consists of:

  • d-1 Treble Gut
  • a-2 Treble Gut
  • e-3 Lyon Gut
  • C-4 Pistoy Gut
  • G-5 Silverplate Gut
  • D-6 Silverplate Gut

Plain gut strings are available with a natural or varnish finish. Natural strings are hand-rubbed with a light oil. Varnished strings have three coats of finish before being hand polished with the oil. There is an additional charge for varnished strings. The string comes with plain, unknotted ends. Knots may be tied for you, and leather washers added for an additional charge.

Instructions on how to tie a string knot are on the back of each package.

    Gut treble viol strings full set with knots

    Easy to put on viol as loops already tied. I found they sounded very good when tuned up to A415, Rapid delivery to Australia! Highly recommended.

    Gamut strings

    I've used Gamut strings on treble, tenor, bass viols, violone and baroque double bass for over two decades. They're the only strings I use. They provide consistently great sound and durability. The Gamut is always extremely responsive and helpful. Outstanding all around.
