"George, I agree that carbon fiber on bass fundamentals is not very common. To my (moderately trained) ear the KF strings sound much more like gut than any wound strings, both in terms of overtones and sustain."

"Hi Ed. Using carbon fiber strings for the bass fundamentals is an unusual (at least to my knowledge) way of stringing a lute. When I have used carbon fiber strings in past I always found them to be the most lively strings in terms of the overtones.…"

"The nylgut strings (NG) are by Aquila (today I would use the new nylgut (NNG) as the old nylgut is no longer available). The carbon-fiber strings (KF) are by Savarez Alliance. Current diameters for my 11c lute (68cm/415 HZ) are: NG44, NG48,…"

"Thanks Ed, sounds interesting. Which string manufacturer and diameters do you use for this lute? Would Nylgut als be a possible choice for replacement of the 6 bass strings? I currently have the Nylgut DE type strings on a 13c lute and 14c swanneck…"

New CD Released today

Dear Friends: I am delighted to announce the release of my latest album “Weiss Undercover”. Includes music of Sylvius Leopold Weiss that is misattributed, "borrowed" or reconstructed. Begins with a set of solo pieces identified as by Weiss in at least one manuscript but almost certainly composed by others. Next are three movements of the violin sonata BWV 1025 by JS Bach that used a solo Weiss suite as the harpsichord accompaniment. Next, two reconstructed duets: A g minor ciaconna of Weiss…See More
