INTRODUCTION

We conceived our “F” (pure silver close wound), “FD” (pure silver open wound), type-strings with the aim of recovering the typical materials and proportions of the wound strings in use in the 18th and 19th century (round wires, no silk between the metal wire and the gut-core): rather different from modern strings, as supported by historical sources and by measurements taken from many original string fragments in museums.

Hereby we would also like to remind you to use our “C” type loaded gut strings when performing late 16th and hearly 17th century music; our “FD” and “AD” types on French 18th Century-repertoires (3rd D Violine; 4th Bass Viola da Gamba C); in the strictest respect to historical authenticity.
