Gut Strings Problems?

the Doctor is IN

Book a One-on-One Consult

Maybe the problem it's not your instrument, and it's not YOU...


Yo maybe a wounderflly talented musician, but if the strings you are using are not the best for your instrument, for your playing, for your repertoire, you may incur in wasting your practising time trying to achieve something your strings cannot give you, and you consume energies, you could even lose jobs and easily feel frustrated...


You may also start to save money to buy a more expensive instrument sacrificing, for example, your vacation time. 


...and this leads to even bigger frustrations!


INSTEAD... what if it was just the wrong string? what if you could just change your strings and win the sound you dreamed about, the response you want from your instrument? You will forget frustrations, you will be confident in your instrument, gain more interesting jobs (...and travel for free 😀).


A counsult will cost you probably less than a new set of strings, nothing compared to what will save you in therms of money, time and frustrations!!





...a one-on-one online consult avoids you travel costs and has the major advantage that we go through the steps of fixing the problem together, so you get a new skill, not just a therapy note!!





...are you maybe in charge for a historically informed group


Consider hiring an expert to ask for the better sets for the repertoire you are practising, and to discuss with if someone in the group faces a problem with his set up. This would certainly make your work more smooth and fulfilling, and on top, you could also benefit leverage by advertising it in your material.



...and if you are an instrument maker: how about delivering your creations with the perfect strings on, so you will not get complaints about "that scratchy D, that lack of power in the A, that tiny e"...


The value of a customer falling in love at the first touch is well worth acquiring this knowledge! ...not to mention the damage of a frustrated customer telling around how your violin doesn't sound easy on the D...


To avoid this is a priority!! ...and it's just a piece of knowledge away, just one more thing to know about violin making, that can dramatically change the perception your customers have of your instruments!



This consult service is also available for amateur string makers in searc of suggestions: I'd love working with you so that your efforts will be fulfilling!!

Don't allow a tiny inexpensive string to spoil your work.

Consider taking a consult and solving the problem!

You know how important is for your talent

It was a wonderful opportunity to have Daniela over here in Tokyo lecturing us. I was impressed by her lecture that was so meticulously prepared backed by her deep knowledge, rich experiences and most of all, her passion for this craft.

Daniela’s first-hand knowledge in manufacturing fields as well as her extensive research experiences created a persuasive ensemble of technical data, stories and practical tips that lifted me steps higher in just a few hours.

She is also a one-of-a-kind lecturer who goes extra miles to reach out to the audience to invite as many questions as possible to make sure everyone goes out of the room with clear minds, fully satisfied. Being a novice gut-string maker myself, I handed Daniela my home-made gut string and she gave me loads of useful insights beyond my expectation. With her trained eyes, just one piece of string will become a treasure chest of knowledge.

Thank you Daniela, I can’t wait to have you back here in Asia.

I have studied an article about the manufacturer of gut strings many years ago. Then I met Daniela in an online mastermind group about bowed instrument making and I realized that her knowledge about gut string is profound and her experiences are so rare and also essentially for all of us who love the bowed instruments. But still I didn't realize that she was the author of that beautiful article until she sent me her CV for preparing a workshop on Gut String.

After we conducted 2018 Tokyo Gut String Workshop together, I'm convinced that working with Daniela is essential not only for musicians and luthiers who long to find a relevant historical performance but also for everybody who need a more colorful performance on steel and synthetic strings because studying with Daniela could lead us to a much profund understanding about the great artist in the past and thus change our attitude.
