    I'm selling a used gut "d" string made by artone. Quotes are around the d because this was formerly a silver would e string that had breaks in it's wrapping. I was advised here to strip off the silver and it's a perfectly good d, and possibly g.

    It was strung as an E string for about a week, but then returned to me after the wrapping was identified as broken.

    You'll notice a picture of me holding four strings. The left is the "d" for sale here, and the others are a coiled brand new artone d string. I am selling a new unused set of d and g locally, so here is the comparison string. If desired, I can measure it with my calipers.

    Update: I just strung up the artone to see how it tunes and sounds as a D and it works just fine. Has a great big booming tone as expected. There is some fraying in the loop, but very little and seems to be holding securely. Tension is good , though I strung it where the g goes, so it'll have lower tension than if you had it where you should. Doesn't feel floppy, nor too tense.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
