I don't notice much difference in volume - what is different, though, is the timbre. I prefer the gut strings to nylon for playing without fingernails. Maybe I just haven't found a good nylon string for flesh playing yet...but I have tried many. I've got Aquila Perla's lined up to try next when these gut strings wear out. Thanks for listening!
