Since their introduction in the early 1950's Eudoxa has been the world wide benchmark for quality covered gut strings. On good instruments these strings produce a warm, well balanced sound with plenty of tonal variation. Although a low tension string they can produce sufficient volume of sound for orchestral work. However with the advent and wide use of powerful high technology metal cored strings such as Larsen and Evah Pirazzi they now work best in small chamber ensembles. As a gut cored string they require regular tuning and are not suited to the use of fine tuners due the degree of 'stretch' involved.
