GUT & SILK 800 - 19th Century Guitar set (1790-1880 musical performances).
This set which is made with only one degree, of tension, represents exactly a historical assembling, typical of the period of e.g. Ferdinand Sor by using gut for trebles and wound basses, silver-copper covered on silk.

(Up to the middle of the 20th century, the only available strings for guitar were plain gut for the trebles and wound on silk core for the basses. Their acoustical performance was quite different from that of modern stringings. The salient characteristics were a marked timbric presence, response and brightness typical of the thinner gut strings (certainly superior to plain nylon and in some respects closer to PVDF or carbon) while the basses, on the other hand, possessed an exquisitely vocal quality, i.e. not so bright as, and with less sustain than, modern wound on nylon strings and more fundamental heavy. The Treble tension- profile is not true scaling (like in use in all of the modern guitar's sets): it is just ligthly scaling, like the standard of that time.)
