This is a double length treble gut string made with beef serosa, 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. This gut is available only in the natural color which varies from white to a pale straw hue.
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 beyond the comfortable range for gut strings, the beef gut would be a good choice for string material as it will stand the strain a little better.
Beef gut is processed to be a little harder than the other kinds of gut and also has a lower twist of about 15 degrees to increase the strength.
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.

Fast service and nicely looped gut strings. I also appreciate that the package was not sent in a plastic envelope out of respect for our environment.
excellent sound, and seems durable when at "modern" pitch
I have always had trouble with excessive perspiration when performing, causing gut strings to go out of tune and break very quickly. I use these strings in heavy+ with varnish and they last MUCH longer than the average gut E string.
