In the field of medieval musical instruments and ethnic instruments Cordedrago is available to the customer to identify the most suitable strings for each specific case. Working with ancient materials and techniques the gut strings of our production allow us to obtain a very expressive and harmonic voice from the instrument.
The strings most suited to medieval instruments are certainly the Cantini di Napoli, because they are simply twisted strings, even if for basses, with gauges over 140, it may be essential to use Cordoni di Roma, very resonant and ready for the answer. For first strings, if you need gauges under 66, it is recommended to use the Ritorte di Salle.
For the calculation of the gauges we kindly ask customers to use the Arto's string calculator, because I do not have time to dedicate myself to the study of individual cases; if my collaboration is indispensable, I warn you in advance that I can add a "consultancy" item in the invoice proportionate to the complexity of the calculation.
