    This is a really nice example of Viennese tuning on gut strings:

    This is Koussevitzky himself on gut strings:

    Jimmy Blanton arco:

    And this lecture on dragonetti might also be interesting:

    playing starts around 37:30

    This is John Feeney playing Haydn Symphony No. 6. Great view of his playing from the tailpiece.

    I was actually thinking of starting a thread just like this the other day... Thanks for the videos everyone.

    nice, thanks a lot. The John Feeney Vids are very helpful in a number of ways. That perspective really gives a good indication of technique. The Sperger duo, what a great sound, what bow is that? Im getting sold more and more on the tone of gut, I think I might be up for the challenge.

    Some more Feeney (cool to hear him as soloist in this context):

    And these Haydn solos are pretty happening:

  10. I know it's an old thread, but I still wanted to reply to this because I got really inspired of the clips posted here. I'm a jazz player, doing mostly pizz things but I'm getting more and more to the gut strings arco-technique so the videos posted here are extremely helpful.
