Copper wound gut (BFC)

The Italian Savarez family moved to France in 1770, where they founded the company, which is known worldwide nowadays, and whose original activity was based on gut and gimped strings.

From 1880, its catalog expands with the use of new materials such as steel, bronze and brass. In 1930 the company began with the production of nylon strings, applying new calibration and control techniques to improve accuracy.


The Savarez BFC wound gut strings (copper wound gut strings) are more especially intended for bowed instruments but also used on lutes, vihuelas.

They are the natural complement to and match perfectly with plain gut strings to give a perfect balance and sound homogeneity.

Like the plain gut strings they offer indisputable sound qualities and perfect intonation.

As the winding techniques have been improved, the string life has also been increased.

These Savarez BFC wound gut strings are wounded with copper (Savarez BFA wound gut strings are also available, gut strings wounded with silver plated copper).

Copper was one of the first metals used in wounded strings and it gives a traditional sound with a clear enriched tone.

technical details

  • STRING: - Copper wound gut strings (BFC)
  • MATERIALS: Copper and Gut
  • LENGTH: 120cm
  • GAUGES: From 380 to 1250
  • EQUIVALENCES: Based on Diameters/PUL (Linear Density)
    • Rather than to mention the diameter, it is specified the linear density (PUL) of each string in order to determine the choice of the string according to the desired tension.
    • Depending on their composition two strings can have a similar linear density (PUL) but not necessarily the same diameter, but they will sound with the same tension; and the other way around two strings that have the same diameter can have a different linear density (PUL) and will not sound with the same tension.
    • Please, check the equivalences chart to know more about equivalences to other materials.
