assorted gut strings Pirastro, Red O Ray

Discussion in 'For Sale: Double Bass Amps, Strings, & Accessories' started by labravajazz, Aug 4, 2012.

  1. Going through the gut string drawer and found a few odd strings that be just what someone on here will need. FYI the Pirastros I have used either a little or a very little but surplus to my requirements. The RedO Rays I haven't actually tried and unlikely to get a round to it but they are historic strings and even just for the hell of of it they may be worth a try..... all prices include worldwide postage.
    1 PIRASTRO CHORDA E STRING (round wound) only used for a couple of days excellent condition retail about $170 - sell for $85 SOLD
    2 PIRASTRO OLIVE D string (flat wound) good condition lightly used no signs of any winding probs at all that I can see - retail around $120 - sell for $60 SOLD!
    3 PIRASTRO Olive A not used much at all so good condition but silks are worn down, so $50 (retail $129) - SOLD
    4 Red O Ray D string plain gut reasonable condition but I haven't tried it so $40 SOLD
    5 Red O Ray A string (silver round wound) red gut core looks quite OK condition but I haven't tried it, so $40 - SOLD
    6 Red O Ray A string as above but silk in worn down condition otherwise looks quite OK - I haven't tried it, so $35 Sold
    More to come when I get around to listing them.....
    Questions, offers, all welcome within reason.
    PS photos available of each of these, if you wish I can email them or put them up on the classifieds - just ask me and I will do :)
    1 CHORDA plain gut D barely used at all PLUS
    1 CHORDA plain gut G used and a bit rough but I think quite playable if you clean it up a bit $75 for the two. SOLD

    1 GOLDEN SPIRAL plain gut D looks OK but I haven't tried it $30 SOLD
    1 Pizzicato wound A looks good but I haven't tried it $40 SOLD

    Just to explain I have accumulated all kinds of gut strings over the years and many used ones I never got around to even trying - I'm not inclind to mess with the set up I use at present and wanting to clear the decks. Also happy to let some other players try out used gut strings to get an idea what works for them.

    There may be a few more if I can locate them in the next days
    By the way does anyone recall what colour ends Golden Spirals have? I have what appears like a G string tynex wound in good order but it has yellow silk end does that make it a G or a D? I'm pretty sure it must be a G going by the gauge ....
