Just wait untl they start whipping up the bass versions of these: BBC News - Spider silk spun into violin strings
Entirely feasible for DBs, apparently. Study says the tensile strength is weaker than guts, but stronger than nylon-core with metal wrappings. Also asserts this isn't just a science stunt, that "Several professional violinists reported that spider strings... generated a preferable timbre, being able to create a new music."
Wonder if the unique structure of these strings can be reproduced synthetically. Intriguing, at any rate.
