I actually prefer the sound of gut strings, but hate the constant tuning that initially occurs. I have heard that there is a new gut string that stays in tune better than the old ones. I am wondering if anyone is familiar with the newer guts strings and could possible recommend some to try. Any thoughts our there?
Could you clarify a bit? Your title mentions synthetic vs gut core strings, but in your question you seem to be asking about specifically gut. I’m not familiar with *any* truly gut string that is impervious to the elements and requires long break-in periods. The whole idea of a synthetic core is to try and replicate the depth/complexity of gut without the sensitivity to temperature and environment or lengthy adjustment periods. If that’s what you’re after, there are dozens (and then some!) of options to discuss. What are you interested in? 🙂
