For rhe E string of cello piccolo

The shop's choice for the characteristic E string of the cello piccolo I bought from them is this. Sounds lovely and natural. While waiting for its arrival, I tried the Sensicore synthetic string of the same description, but there is no comparison to this real gut string. Next time I may try Aquila's E string for cello to see why the shop prefers this.

Aquila acquits itself well

The Aquila Bass viol top gut string I bought has been exactly what I wanted. It has made me realise how sweet a sound the top string can have and that I probably should have bought one sooner. I will not leave it so long next time - at least I did not wait for the top string to break before replacing it!
