Which gut string?


Unwound gut, silver wound, copper or aluminum, small or big diameters, oiled, varnished...find just the string you need !

A "gut" double bass player for several decades, my aim in creating this site is to bring together a maximum of gut string makers, both wound and unwound, in order to simplify musicians’ search for the right string, the string that will make their instrument sing !
