Up to the middle of the 20th century, the only available strings for guitar were plain gut for the trebles and wound on silk core for the basses. Their acoustical performance was quite different from that of modern stringings. The salient characteristics were a marked timbric presence, response and brightness typical of the thinner gut strings (certainly superior to plain nylon and in some respects closer to PVDF or carbon) while the basses, on the other hand, possessed an exquisitely vocal quality, i.e. not so bright as, and with less sustain than, modern wound on nylon strings and more fundamental heavy. This 19th Century Guitar set (resembling 1790-1880 musical performances) is - Made with only one degree of tension that exactly represents a historical assembling, typical of the period of e.g. Ferdinand Sor.
