These strings consist of a Nylgut® multifilament core (characterized by a remarkable stability in climatic changes) with copper wires over-varnished. Diameters: from 1.00 to 2.50 mm, expressed in equivalent solid gut.

These strings were specifically designed for the deep basses of archlutes, d minor-lutes, theorbos with shortened extention, but also for the basses of regular Renaissance and Baroque lutes, if you prefer a more fundamental oriented sound. The innovative characteristic of our DE strings lies in the fact that they were specifically conceived to best reproduce the timbric and acoustical qualities of our C type loaded gut strings, which are strongly fundamental oriented. Standard Length: 140 cm.


To keep calculations simple and make it possible to use any available string-calculator, C type loaded gut strings, as well as wound Nylgut ones D and DE types, are referred to by a letter following a number indicating the equivalent diameter of a plain gut string. E. g. "140 C" or "140D"stands for strings (indicated by the letter "C" or "D") corresponding to a plain gut string 1.40 mm. in diameter. The actual diameter of the strings is, of course, smaller but under playing conditions it will have the same working tension as a plain gut string of 140 mm. diameter at equal pitch.
