My son asked me a simple question today and I was surprised that I actually don't know the answer to it... I've recently switched to gut, and have mentioned to my kids that I have to be careful about playing when it's wet out, as water is bad for gut strings. My son asked me what would happen if the strings got wet, and how the damage would appear, etc. I've only been using gut for a short while, only used it briefly when I was a kid, and never got it wet, so I quickly realized I have no idea specifically how water/moisture affects gut, how the strings react, and how it affects playability. So my son and I can be educated, can someone lay it out for us? - What happens to gut strings when they get too much moisture on them? I.e., how do they react, what does water damaged gut look/feel like (does it get slimy or ?), and how does it affect playability? Thanks!
