wound gut

wound gut

We conceived our "F" (close wound), "FD" (open wound) in pure silver; "A" (close wound), "AD" (open wound) in silvered copper wire 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.
