For Centuries all natural gut strings were the only choice available to musicians. With modern production capabilities and the advent of nylon/plastic came a longer lasting more consistent string that was also more impervious to climate and humidity changes However as it is with many modern improvements something was lost.
The feel and action of true gut strings can’t be matched. And to some, the authentic traditional tone produced by gut strings can’t be replaced either.
Made from multiple strands of real animal (not cat) intestines gut strings are the result of a slow, painstaking process that requites relentless attention to detail.
