: 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.
