I was trying a set of Evah Pirazzi Gold strings that were labeled as medium tension. I had just got the violin in tune and when I picked it up to play the tail gut broke and send the tail and the bridge flying. I have a GCV Cremona Kreisler replica violin and I had a titanium tail gut (Product Code: TTGVVA) installed. The bridge was undamaged but it looks like the strings dug a little deeper grooves in it. Has anyone ever had this happen? I also learned that the EPGs do run on the high tension side regardless of what they are labeled. Disappointing but ok. Live and learn. I switched back to my nylon tail gut and a new set of Zyex strings. Should I send it in to be looked at?
