Aquila's polished varnished gut strings merge the best of their knowledge of the 17th century string making traditions with modern methods aimed to improve stability to climate changes and string durability.

The varnish carefully chosen by Aquila ensures perfect compatibility with the elasticity of the gut, a perfect contact with the hairs of your bow, maximum protection to mechanical wear and increased stability in humidity changes.

By far my favourite e string. It is durable and has a beautiful light tone. It performs well under extreme climate conditions too. I have played in - 20 and + 30 and it has kept it's tuning well.

Great value strings

These are excellent and although violin strings, work wonders for my Soprano Rebec!

Just the job!

I bought this as the gut ‘e’ of my Chorda strings was starting to come adrift. This is a much better job; no whiskers, and a firm, clear sound. Also long enough to make two strings. The ‘a’ and ‘d’ of the original set are fine, but I have sent off for Aquila replacements anyway. Very pleased
