STRINGS i USED dURING THE PROJECT

For my first set of strings I went to Potsdam to Pure Cordes by Valentin Oelmüller - Pure Corde and by Toro Strings


  • I: Toro sheep gut diskant by Toro

  • II: High twist Darmsaite

  • III: Ø 2,70mm - Pure "triple" 

  • IV: Silver wound gut string Equiv. Ø 4 mm

I then tried more strings with the help and advices of Bastian Muthesius, in Berlin, I also tried strings by Aquila, Liedmeier, Kürschner, and Gamut Strings.

About the tension, have you heard about equal tension and equal feel of tension?... Do your research ;)
