Gamut Academie Baroque Violin 4th/G Copper String - Heavy
- Gauge: 0.86mm
- Tension: Heavy
- Length: Single Length
- Type: Copper Wound
This is a single length gut core string wound with a copper wire, with a thin silk layer wound onto the core between the gut and wire. Because the wire is round, the surface of the wire is polished so that the string feels smooth. The end of the string that goes into the tailpiece is knotted and there is a lop of gut on the end. This knot will hold the string in most historical tailpieces, but may slip through a modern tailpiece. Copper wound strings were used in the late 18th and into the late 19th centuries.
