CHORDA (Pirastro)

Category:

Chorda strings are made of sheep gut, are low tension, and authentic strings for baroque instruments.  Gauge is designed for 440Hz tuning, and what we usually stock.  Use strong tension for 415 Hz.  Altering the gauge by 1/2 PM changes tension by 4%.   (These are lower tension than Eudoxa and Oliv).   A and D are not knotted at the end.  G and C are knotted.  There may be a delay in acquiring thin or thicker gauge strings.
