Tenor Gamba strings in lamb gut

Vibrating string length: 56 cm

The usage of unsplit lamb gut, besides being closer to the historical reality of the string makers of the past, has also led to strings with unexpected superior acoustical and mechanical properties, as compared to those produced with gut strips. The HU type strings have a surface that has been smoothened only the minimum needed to guarantee that the string is not false; the string is then slightly oiled.
Standard length is 120 cm up to diameters of 1.90 mm. Starting from a diameter of 2.00 mm, the standard length changes to 180 mm only.

Tension

The tables below present, for each note, first the string in medium tension and then the string in strong tension.

Choose which strings to install

If you prefer to arrange your set by selecting the precise diameters you can add the single strings from the tables below, where the recommended diameters are shown. An increase in diameter corresponds to an increase in tension.

Else if you prefer to choose completely freely any diameter , we suggest you go to the summary page of Unsplit lamb gut “HU” strings and Close wound “FU” strings (pure silver winding on unsplit lamb gut cores)
