ok, i can't help but want to try out some plain or varnished guts for the G and D strings. alot of the players that have the tone i dig seem to use gut....so i guess i need to see what my bass will sound like with some too. i have some flexocors and some permanents so i could play with either of those for a match. i'm thinking about the Lemur "varnished european" gut strings (pricepoint is attractive for an experiment), i'm wondering how much better will some chorda, dluglecki or other high quality gut be than the lemur stuff???? where will i notice the difference....arco-ability? intonation? volume? durability? feel?....... are chorda's varnished?
