In Reply to: My first set of gut strings-help ! posted by Bob Burns on February 01, 2001 at 20:15:05:
: What is the proper care and maintenance of gut strings ? Also,the D string isnt as focused as the G or A. Any hints ?
I recently put a set on my Kay. I raised the bridge up to provide more tension and more space for the string to swing around. I didn't like them at first but I got used to the subtleties and the difference in decay. Plus they are great for slapping! Get some all natural Almond oil or something similar from a co-op or natural foods market and put in on the strings once a week or so. Keeps them from drying out.
