Hi, a rapid search on Abebooks for luthier books show a few hits https://www.abebooks.fr/products/isbn/9780962067358?cm_sp=rec-_-pd_detail-1-d_0-_-plp&reftag=pd_detail-1-d_0 but no hits on gut-stringed baroque-style violins. Does anyone have a suggestion of a good book on the measurements of baroque-styled gut stringed violins? Thanks
Hello ive been getting into the gut world, i play mostly romantic era to modern repertoire in a chamber, symphony, and solo setting. I have used the tricolre strings by gamut in the standard "heifetz" setup but i have changed it to a wrapped D (i find the unwrapped one too thick and kinda iffy). The strings lasted from about March 2021 to late August (6 months) and were not dead when i changed them. The only reason i changed them was because the strings were fraying and felt bad under the hand. I had snipped off any large frays and was generally happy with the strings' performance in Florida heat and humidity. Does anyone have any advice for making gut strings last longer???
