Fiddle strings were originally made of sheep's intestine, also called catgut. Most fiddle strings today are either a stranded synthetic core wound with metal, or a solid or stranded steel core, wound with metals. Fiddle strings may have several layers of winding to influence the warmth or brightness of the string. Fiddle string prices vary greatly by the materal type with gut-core being the most expensive, followed by synthetic cores, and the cheapest being steel cores.
