I. Mon Experience
STRINGS i USED dURING THE PROJECT
Equal tension: 13kg/string
I: Toro sheep gut diskant by Toro
II: High twist Darmsaite
III: Ø 2,70mm - Pure "triple"
- IV: Silver wound gut string Equiv. Ø 4 mm
My first strings set from PURE CORDES and the one I used during my analisis of the manuscripts

About the tension, have you heard about equal tension and equal feel of tension?... Do your research ;)
I play on an equal tension of 13kg per string, this is the result of the calculation of the tension of the string according to the angle above the bridge (155° for my baroque cello), the string length (712mm) and the tuning I play (415Hz).
Gamuts strings made things easier for us, depending on your tuning, string length and the tension you want on your cello you can calculate the diameter of strings you need: Calculate
