58.5 cm, Arabic tuning, medium tension 2, wound g - LaBellaRegular price $17.67
A well calibrated medium high tension set, averaging around 3.5 kilos in the mids and 3.7-3.8 inthe highs and low C. This set increases the tension in the mids and upper strings over my medium tension 1 set.
This is close similar in tension to what Faruk Turunz sets his ouds up with, though this set is a little more balanced.
This set uses a wound gg, providing a smoother timbral transition between registers and avoiding the tubbiness that a nylon at this tension and scale length would produce ,
