Quote:Classical gitarres are outfitted with strings made of the intestines of various animals.
Quote:Strung with either animal intestines or horse hair provides the soft tone to the gitarre.
Quote:The most popular strings for violin are synthetic core, metal-wound strings such as Thomastik Dominant, Pirastro Tonica or Obligato, or D'Addario's Zyex. All of these brands have a good tone, stay in tune, last well and are competitively priced. Traditionally, violin strings were made of gut (sheep's intestines),and towards the end of the 19th century began to acquire metal windings to make them more powerful.Pirastro are the leading manufacturer of gut strings, with their Olive and Eudoxa labels. Also available are D'Addario's Golden Spiral and Golden Spiral solo. For early music players we stock 2 kinds of plain gut string: Pirastro Chorda and Bow Brand.
