This is a set of strings for the baroque violin. We have bundled together the most popular kinds of strings and offer them in a standard set for ease of ordering.
The set consists of:
- e-1 - Treble gut double length
- a-2 - Treble gut double length
- D-3 - Pistoy gut single length
- G-4 - Silver wound gut single length
The set comes with plain ends, but the e-1, a-2 and D-3 can be knotted. 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.
Academie strings are manufactured in the USA by Gamut Music, 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.
