I just replaced very old gut strings with Corelli 372M tungsten strings. I can't say that I'm thrilled with the decidedly metallic sound, but I can live with them, given the price of new gut strings.
My problem is that the new "A" string is so loose at pitch that it is buzzing on the fingerboard. Although I have an adjustable bridge, the height necessary to stop the buzzing is much higher than I want it for the other strings.
I'm guessing that a replacement for the string, with a much higher tension at pitch will solve the problem.
Can you string gurus suggest a replacement?
I thank you.
