First class gut strings for high and medium pitches. All strings with a diameter greater than 0.50 mm are manufactured exclusively with high torsion and undergo a special treatment aimed at maximum elasticity for easy response and long life for best acoustic results.
The surface of the polished strings is only partially sanded, imitating the historical manual polishing process to obtain a string that is true to the original. With this method, the number of ground fibres is significantly reduced compared to modern methods. The advantages are: Better resistance to climatic variations, longer life and better acoustic properties.
These strings are very similar to historical hand-polished strings in that they have only a fraction of the fibres cut through them compared to the grinding methods otherwise used today. The advantages are increased stability against climatic fluctuations, longer life (comparable to lacquered strings) and superior tonal properties.
Due to the special manufacturing method of polished strings, the diameters represent average values (e.g. a string with diameter 66 can be in the range of 65 - 67).
