The Chorda A- and D-strings are of plain sheep gut. The G- and C-strings are wound with a silver-plated copper wire and are unpolished. They give a brilliant and soft sound with enormous possibilities. They have very low string tension and comfortable left hand feeling. These strings are designed for 440 Hz tuning, for 415 Hz tuning please use high tension gauge. Altering the PM gauge by 1/2 PM changes the tension by 4%.
These are ideal authentic strings for baroque instruments.
A- and D-strings come without knot.
G- and C-strings come with knot.
