This is a double-length (48", 120cm) treble gut string made with beef serosa available with either a natural or varnish finish. This gut string is available only in the natural color which varies from white to a pale straw hue.

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.

If you select the knot option, the string will come with knots tied on each end. You can cut the string in the middle and install as is your practice. Instructions on how to tie a string knot are on the back of each package.

Beef serosa has a higher tensile strength than does sheep gut, so this string is useful for instruments that require extra durability. If your instrument has a longer string length which puts it beyond the comfortable range for sheep gut strings, the beef gut would be a good choice for string selection as it will stand the strain a little better. Treble gut is processed to be a little harder than other kinds of gut, and it also has a lower twist of about 15 degrees to increase the strength.

#

Hand-made in the USA by Gamut Music, Inc., a leader in the revival of early music strings and instruments. 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.

All Gamut Academie strings (pure gut and gut/metal-wound) are made with beef serosa unless they specifically say "Sheep Gut." All pure gut Tricolore violin and viola strings are made with sheep gut; gut/metal-wound Tricolore and all Red Diamond strings are made with beef serosa.

Gamut gut string gauges are approximate (≈) diameter. Meaning, that while a ≈0.60mm string is polished in the workshop to a diameter of 0.60mm, changes in ambient humidity, temperature, shipping, and storage conditions can cause to string to expand or contract slightly.

Gimped gut strings and custom gauged equal tension strings are gauged with the equivalent-gauge (=) system. This means that the gauge listed, such as =1.50mm, indicates that the string is approximately equal in weight to a plain gut string of that diameter. Of course, because the wire is much heavier than gut, the string will be much thinner than a plain gut string.

More information about Gamut gut strings, string types, gauges, and string tensions can be found on our FAQ/Articles page. Not finding an answer to your question? Please contact us directly: support@gamutmusic.com.

    Violin, e-1

    Beautiful sound and feel! I'm using this at A-440 with a Tricolore set. After trying the light+ and finding it too quiet, the medium+ is just right.

    Violin E-1 gut unvarnished

    Fine quality, smooth playing. I follow the old school method of rubbing a light oil on the new string to make it last longer. Excellent results.

    Arrived quickly. It was easy to knot onto my violin and tuned up without any threat of snapping.
