G Violone

“… the humming Violone is not less important…because its thicker sound tone continues to buzz and is heard from afar …”
Johann Mattheson: Das neu eröffnete Orchester, Hamburg 1713

We have taken great care during our wild experiments to ensure that our thick sheep gut strings are made to hum and buzz.

Since the string length (vibrating length of the string measured from nut to bridge) of individual instruments differs, the string thicknesses should be chosen according to the string length.

We produce special pure gut F-, C- and G-strings.
By combining the traditional rope production methods with string making techniques, we were able to create a significantly thickened string.
Our string is very flexible, produces an audibly clearer sound and reacts more quickly to the bow compared to a string that has been thickened less.
F-strings produced in this fashion perform well.
Pure gut C- and G-strings need a more practiced hand and a curious mindset.

Wound strings are an important subject of research and testing. We are working on a viable solution.

Recommendation for playing at a frequency of A=415Hz. The following string set recommendations have the effect of equal tension on all strings.

Vibrating String Length 81/82 cm 83/84 cm 85/86 cm
G 124 120 114
D 164 160 155
A 225 215 210
F 280 270 265
C 375 360 350
G 500 480 470
