    Hi all. I'm a gut guy, have been for ages. But yesterday my Artone A broke, and so I thought I'd try a different E & A combo while I'm looking for some gut replacements.
    I found these bottom two strings amongst my boxes of strings and put them on. They actually sound quite good, I'm surprised cos it's not usually my setup.
    Are they perhaps Pirastro Flat Chromesteel??

    Thanks, I thought the colours were similar but they don't have an obvious rope core at the ball end so I wasn't sure. Played on this setup last night mic'd up and a DI in a huge room. I'm actually liking this setup more now. Nice to have the strings stay in tune for the whole gig!
