Thread: Natural gut strings

    Default Natural gut strings

    Anyone know where I can purchase natural gut strings for a tenor ukulele. So far I've only seen them for sopranos. Anyone use or like natural gut?

    In America Aquila or Gamut strings. You just have to give the diameter of any string.

    There's a reason why they're not that common these days. They're expensive, they don't last long and they're known to have intonation problems.

    Really, Segovia championed the creation of nylon strings for classical guitar nearly 100 years ago, and most people have never looked back. There are some purists who insist on gut strings for "historically informed performances" on period instruments. For the rest of us, gut strings are inferior to more modern alternatives.
