A fine g string

Pros: Good sounding string . Very stable for a gut string more so than the gold label g .Whether that is to do with the construction of the string or the addition of gold in the winding I do not know . Has plenty of volume and lasts a good while . Nearly 6 months in my case .

Cons: It does not have as vintage a sound as the gold label g , which of course is not necessarily a bad thing for some people and should not discourage anyone from trying the string It costs a lot and is second only to the oliv stiff which I have not tried because of the price
