: : Why are gut strings higher than others?

: more expensive materials and labor intensive manufacturing

: : Are they made of "gut"?

: yes, usually sheep gut.

: : Do they have a better tonal quality for plucking?

: A matter of opinion, based on what the bassist prefers. If you'd asked me 30 years ago, I'd say yes. However, string technology has come a long way since then, and the composite strings of today are quite impressive.
