Treble-Gamba Strings

Fundamentally even today it is still possible to use plain gut strings for the lowest strings of the gamba, however the stiffness and thickness of the mono-filament of the gut string is a considerable impairment to playability of the deeper notes.

 
It is only since 1660 that spinning with copper has evolved. However, the most popular winding is silver-plated copper wire, which has the advantage of the silver coating combined with the sound quality of the copper string.
 
For studio takes we recommend silver wound gut string with a polished surface. They are quiet even as your fingers change position on the fingerboard. However, it has only been possible to manufacture this sort of string since the 20th century.
