Description

These good quality student strings give a bright clear tone and are designed to be unaffected by changes in temperature and humidity. These strings will transform the sound of 'school' violins strung with poor quality Chinese strings. Excellent tone and tuning stability.

To check your instrument size measure the length of the back (LOB) excluding the 'button' which is the thumb shaped extension at the top where the neck is anchored. Old instruments can vary, if more than 1/2" over choose the next size up.

4/4 - LOB 356mm (14")

3/4 - LOB 330mm (13")

1/2 - LOB 305mm (12")

1/4 - LOB 280mm (11")

1/8 - LOB 254mm (10")


Specifications

  • Metal based strings ideal for beginners.
  • Quick, bright tone.
  • Better tuning stability than synthetic strings.
  • Made in USA

Excellent budget string in a range of weights

Pros: These were the low tension ones. Fitted them to a Stagg Electric fiddle to reduce the strain on the non-rigid construction of these instruments. Work well to do that, and sound pretty good, though I think the mediums are better unless you have a specific application.

Cons: Nothing not to like, really.

Other: I've had a few sets of these (the medium ones are the same as, and cheaper than, the strings they sell as 'fiddle' strings, I'm told). They are great for a basic metal string. I like a bright sound and these don't disappoint - I find they are not too harsh, and they are smooth and comfortable under the fingers.
