In the early 19th century, the terz guitar was so popular that the majority of guitar duets were played with the terz as primary voice and the guitar as second voice.
The name of this instrument is related to the difference with the standard guitar tuning (terz meaning a third upper). Many original editions of duets from Vienna in this time period also refer to this instrument by using the notation "tierce".
Mauro Giuliani and Caspar Joseph Mertz wrote extensively for the terz guitar as a complement to the main standard guitar.
This set was conceived for one grade of tension and consists of Nylgut® trebles, adopting the representative mean diameters, while for basses (that are silver plated copper wires wound on Nylgut® multifilament core) to find the right balance between wire and core, which would recreate exactly the typical sound of the wound silk strings of the time.
