No gut strings :(

Wouldn't it be best for gut strings? I really enjoy your videos, you show up in searches for the baroque instruments that you play youtube...you and Paul Odette...between the two of you, both so enjoyable.

That's a pretty instrument. Is it spirit varnished? or oil finished, it looks very flat.

Yes gut strings are nice (but expensive and fragile)... Not so flat, and french polished (but not to a glossy finish)
