Venice" type strings are oiled strings with a rope-like construction similar to a catline, but in contrast with a smooth surface, characterised by a remarkable degree of elasticity, which is higher than that of any other natural gut string with high torsion. Venice strings are particularly suitable for the middle register (the transition from plain to wound) in Renaissance and Baroque stringing.
Note! Since Venice strings stretch more than the usual high-twisted strings, this leads to slightly thinner final diameters at the same tension. Therefore, the starting diameter should be approx. 7% thicker.
