Loaded synthetic lute bass and meanes strings type CD and type CDL for middle sized theorbos and historical archlutes

CD strings are loaded synthetic strings used for basses and meanes of Lute and Baroque Guitar characterized by a high, standardized specific weight, achieved by loading the material with very thin metallic Copper powder during the extrusion process (we do not use Mercury or Lead compounds).

CDL strings, instead, are suggested for middle sized modern theorbos and historical archlutes. The glazed surface is similar to the rectified natural gut. The strong, warm and percussive tone, without the excessive brightness typical of a modern wound string, is perfectly consistent with the tone and dynamics character of the higher strings, whether they are gut or synthetic strings.

Excellent tuning stability: far better than any plain gut, synthetic or wound string available today.

Notice!

Due to their lower density, the diameters of the CD and CDL strings are – at the same tension and frequency – larger than the corresponding wound strings. It may therefore be necessary to widen the holes on the bridge and on the pegs to a certain extent. Please check the actual diameters of the CD and CDL strings in the diameter tables.
