This is a single length treble gut string made with beef serosa. Natural strings are hand-rubbed with a light oil. This gut is available only in the natural color which varies from white to a pale straw hue.

Beef serosa has a higher tensile strength than does sheep gut, so this string is useful for instruments that require extra durability. If your instrument has a longer string length which puts beyond the comfortable range for gut strings, the beef gut would be a good choice for string material as it will stand the strain a little better.

Beef gut is processed to be a little harder than the other kinds of gut and also has a lower twist of about 15 degrees to increase the strength.
