Product Description

  • No chin rest
  • All pure gut with a metal wound gut G (Gamut standard gut set)
  • Bridge and nut adjusted for fiddle playing according to customer specs
  • 19th Century type tailpiece with simple string holes for knotting or looping gut strings rather than the keyholes of later tailpieces
  • Real gut tailgut

Note about bridge and nut adjustment: 

This process is more involved and time consuming than it sounds. With fiddle setup, we are often trying to achieve the sweet spot between a low string height and buzzing that can occur if the strings are set too low. We go through iterations of bridge triming in approximately 1mm increments. We have done so many setups that we can tell when the point has been reached when one more milimeter will make the strings too low.
