: I'm looking for a company making nylon or gut plated 5ths tuned set from low C
: to high A, or a company considering special orders... Thanks

Maybe Pirastro.
Their synthetic core Obligatos are available in orchestra and solo-tuning.
You could take the low B5 (or solo-tuning low C#5), the solo-tuning F#4 (for the G4), the orchestra D2 and solo-tuning A1.

Their Eudoxa gut strings are available from low B to high C, but you'd need to get them in gauges to match.
Thin low B5 (for the low C5)
Thick A3 (for the G3)
Medium D2
Thin G1 (for the A1)

I'm not sure if they're still available in gauges though.
You can query them at .

Hope this helps.
