Sing the Soul!
August 12, 2021
Personally, Gut is the only way to go, especially for professionals. Yes they are harder to play on. They deviate and could be capricious, but the soulfulness and warmth all worth it. After all, they carry the soul of the animal they were produced from. Must adjust to them and they must adjust to you and the violin. I would Not recommend it for beginners, unless you are in a professional violin schooling setting, where you practice at least 3-6 hours a day. Synthetic sounds synthetics, flat and thin. You get used to tuning, especially if you were trained on gut strings. They settle eventually and last for a while if you take care of them of course. I love them, especially G and A. E is good, but not dramatic enough for me. My Favorites !!!still:-)
- richness of sound,
- good resonance
- relatively good lifetime
- great for ear intonation practice
- work well with other brands
- react to temperature
- more than average tuning is required
- could be thick and hard on untrained fingers
