I looked through this forum quite a bit but couldn’t find anything specifically related to what I’m looking for. Maybe I overlooked something (I’m rather ill at the moment, so please forgive me if I’m being repetitious!).
I have a L&H Prelude 38. It was one of the last ones produced. A restringing is WAY overdue, and I’m considering switching over from gut to nylon. It is very humid where I live and gut strings pop all the time. I’m hoping that I’ll have more luck with nylon. My main question is: how significant will the loss in tone be? Any ideas?
I’m okay with it losing some tone. That’s fine. I am mostly looking for a more economical choice until I move next summer (probably to Los Angeles where the humidity is far lower). I am just worried that it will go from having a beautiful voice to sounding plunky.
Any suggestions for brands would be appreciated too. At the moment I’m looking at the Vanderbilt Nylons.
Thanks so much! I’m going off for a nap now.
