Florentiner (High Twist)

Making strings since 1950, Kürschner produce the widest range of plain and wound gut strings available nowadays. Besides a large variety of diameters and lengths, Kürschner offer string types with different flexibility, elasticity, intonation and sound characteristics for many purposes and instruments.


Their production is based on the principals of traditional procedures combined with modern manufacture.


Gut strings which have the maximum possible twist are called Florentiner or High Twist Gut.


The special properties of this type of string are its higher levels flexibility and elasticity compared to plain gut. These properties make it a good choice for mid range string (because of the lower tensile strength it is not suitable for use as treble string, this is why we they are not available in the thinnest sizes).


The Florentiner has the same appearance as the plain gut string and like this is perfectly round and cylindrical, thus, true in vibration.
