Classic string instruments is a big category haha.
Gut is more much more high maintenance and is more expensive generally. Most people who are playing casually/learning/whatever will use nylon for the G, B, and e strings on their classical guitar, with wound metal strings for the E, A and D strings.

Yes, recalling my experience playing violin in high school, sheep gut sounds best by a wide margin, but it is expensive, fragile, and temperamental (tuning varies annoyingly with temperature and humidity, especially during the first few minutes of playing). Still, I used gut wound with nickel-silver for G, D, and A, and of course steel for E. I have no idea what's available today, or what it costs.

Talk about necro-bump. :wink: :lol:

I am happy because I just passed the threshold of having less than 1000 topics with unread posts. Time to celebrate. :mrgreen:

While I have been very inactive in the community the last two or three years, I used to spend at least a couple of hours a day here and on the wiki. The last 1 1/2 years I have usually been away from home 12-14 hours a day, mostly due to working locations and hours, and in particular, unpleasantly long commutes (a 30 minutes walk I sometimes have had before was refreshing, the 1 1/2 hour drive home I had during this time was exhausting).

Edit (May 11): Now less than 500 topics with unread posts left.
Edit (May 23): Less than 250 topics with unread posts left.
Edit (June 1): I am now back to no unread posts. :D I have not been there since at least 2017!
