Gamut Academie Strings
Hello, Has anybody tried the copper wound G or gimped D string from the Gamut Academie string sets? I am curious in the difference in stiffness, tone, and response compared to the Tricolores and other gut strings. I normally play with a modern set up or use baroque tuning with a modern bow. The gimped D seems like it might have an interesting character to it.
Haven't tried the gimped D from Gamut, but I imagine it would sound pretty good. Higher tension but at a lower diametre. I heard they go false quickly, though. No idea if it's true or not; I may buy one next time.
The gimped D sounds extremely thin and choked, would not recommend at all. The regular plain gut D sounds much better.
James, Thanks for your input! What gauge did you use?
