Synthetic Gut & Silk 800®
Until the middle of the 20th-century guitar strings were made up exclusively of gut for the Trebles and wound strings on a silk core for the basses. The acoustic performance of this kind of setup was very different from that of the current sets. It was indeed characterised by a marked timbre and brilliance of the most acute strings in gut (certainly superior to nylon and in some ways, for the treble, more similar to that of PVDF or Carbon) while the basses, on the other hand, were of nature exquisitely vocal, i.e. presenting a less bright and less persistent sonority than the current bass strings wound on a nylon core and more focused on the fundamental.

This set was conceived for one grade of tension only, and consists of gut-coloured Supernylgut® trebles, with a rectified surface exactly as it’s made on gut strings, adopting the representative mean diameters as indicated by Pujol in his method “Escuela Razonada de la Guitarra” of 1934. Basses have a silver-plated copper winding over special multifilament core, that we call ‘Rayon’, and are specifically balanced between metal and core in order to achieve the same texture of sound found in the original silk-wound strings.
