Thank you Pyramid for doing these strings
Brian449, 20.08.2015
This is a quality set of nylon strings with silver-plated wound basses. In terns of materials, they are like classical guitar strings, but at the appropriate gauges. The first 6 courses are unison and the two diapasons are in octaves. Given the price, they represent excellent value for money.
You might be a purist and want to use gut, or you might like the modern alternative, nylgut, a specially extruded nylon treated to feel and sound like gut (Nigel north uses those.) You will pay a lot more for those.
After WWII, when nylon became commercially available, virtually all guitarists stopped using gut and changed to nylon. The sound is different, but the reliability and durability are orders of magnitude better. You can bet your boots that if nylon had been available in renaissance times, lutenists would have used it.

Having played the classical guitar, with no previous experience with lute, I bought a 8c renaissance lute from Thomann about a year ago. Substituting the original strings with this set greatly improved both tone quality playability.

très déçu ..
Lionel23, 21.07.2019
.. par ce jeu de cordes: ça frise ++ dès qu'on attaque un peu, obligeant à jouer faiblard, du coup le jeu est plat et sans résonance.
Pyramid étant un fabricant honnête, je suppose que c'est lié à la différence de diapason des cordes (57 cm) et du luth commercialisé par le site (longueur vibrante 60 cm). Erreur de tir de Thomann ? Je commanderai mon prochain jeu chez un luthier spécialisé.
