I love that article that Gamut has about the making of gut strings. I would have ordered some except that they are over $400 for a set! I'm just not that good where I need $400 strings. So I ordered a set of Clef guts from Upton Bass for $160. I mostly play pizz but I'm hoping they will bow reasonably well. From what I've heard, Clefs are pretty much the same as the Lenzners and allegedly better than the LaBellas and Efranos. Hope so...my wife already thinks I spend too much on it already!
