This is a single length, (24"), string with copper wire twisted into it, and is available with either 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 at an additional charge per string.

I find D strings the most problematic of all gut strings. But the gimped D that I have from Gamut lasts longer than any others and has a true pitch longer
This string offers more clarity on my instrument without sacrificing warmth.
The D string on my baroque viola sounded muddy, so my teacher suggested I try a gimped D. Amazing difference---the instrument now speaks clearly on the D string.
This is my favorite all-time gut violin string. The tone is really beautiful. The only reason that I'm giving it four stars is because they go false so quickly. They last five d-strings I've put on have all gone false within a day or two. I only buy this d string because it's my favorite in terms of sound, I just wish they lasted longer.
