Strings

Violin and Viola Strings

Each violin, viola and cello has its own tonal characteristics. Different instruments may respond differently with the same set of strings. Selecting strings for your instrument will depend on a few elements such as the current sound of your instrument, the tonal qualities that you prefer, the level of playing and your needs. Using the most suitable string for your instrument is equally as important as selecting the most suitable instrument for yourself.

Pirastro Tonica Violin Strings (Full size)

Pirastro Tonica Violin Strings (Full Size)

PIRASTRO TONICA violin strings have a core made from nylon. They produce a lively well-rounded sound, perfectly balanced across all four strings. Responding instantly to any bowing style, they reward both player and listener with an open and direct sound. With substantially reduced background ‘hiss’, players can sustain a more even tone helping to achieve smoother string crossings. Whilst giving positive feedback to your left hand, Tonica violin strings remain very easy to play right up into the highest positions. Projection and brilliance have been upgraded. However, this excess does not mean that the Tonica has lost its warmth. Playing pianissimo has considerably improved. All bow strokes are possible resulting in smooth crossings from one note to another. Easy right hand articulation and tone attack. Due to their medium string tension Tonica strings are suitable for all instruments.
