Seeing as our E strings are steel for convenience, I was wondering if it would be possible to make the E string resemble a synthetic by making it out of a very flexible metal that can be made into a thick string similar to gut. If this would not work due to the string having due great of a dead zone where it becomes inflexible as you shift up, could an e be made by cross-weaving flexible metal strands with strands of polymer ad then wrapped in a very thin wrap to give brightness and warm at the same time?
PS: Are you there, Mr. Warchal? Info would be greatly appreciated. :)
