This is a single length violin string with a gut core and tandem wire winding of silver and aluminum wires. There is a leather washer at the knot to help keep the string secure in the tailpiece. The core for this string has been carefully seasoned and treated in the tradition of the Perfection Musical String workshop who first developed the Tricolore string in the early 20th century. It is knotted at the end with a leather washer.

This string made my violin come to life. I was already using the Tricolore plain gut A and the Tricolore gut/silver G and switching to the Tricolore D from another brand gave me the overall sound I had been seeking. It brought out tones in the G that had never been there before. I added a platinum E string and that seemed to round out the set nicely. Gamut's customer service is also great. Note: this string has black winding, not as pictured.
After a lifetime of trying strings for my precious Guadagnini, Gobetti, and Rogeri, each for different segment of the repertoire ranging from early Baroque to music written in the 20th century, I have never encountered a more reliable and beautiful sounding string than the products from Gamut. Thank you very much for your attentive service.
My violin did not perform well with a plane gut string I tried this string in it's place and it works great on my violin with the silver G, plane gut A and the good brat E
