Lute Wound Strings (D type)
|It can be mounted on these instruments
First quality wound strings with vernished copper wire, manufactured according to our best experience. The innovative idea was to employ a Nylgut® multifilament core (very stable to the moisture changing) and to partly limit the production of the very high overtones giving the metallic edge that is generally present in the strings of this type and never welcome by early music lovers. The thinner strings, the ones more subject to wear-and-tear, are protected by a light superficial vernish which also grants a longer playing life.
Diameters are expressed in equivalent solid gut (i.e. a 73D = .73 mm gut string).
THE EQUIVALENT SOLID GUT
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.
