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

1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Really good strings at a really good price. Vast improvement over the strings that came with the violin.

Cons: No cons.

Other: I've used D' Addario guitar strings for years and now I've bought a cheap violin so I thought I'd try their strings for that. I'm very pleased that I did.

Good value

Pros: Good value.

Cons: They sound rather harsh; hard to control in a way. I got them for my daughter's 3/4 violin, but probably get synthetic core strings next time.

Bright-sounding, good quality budget strings
2 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: They go straight up to pitch with very little settling-in time. Nice bright, clear tone, very suitable for folk/bluegrass playing, and affordable for students.

Cons: They don't last forever, but are cheap enough to compensate.

Good consistent string for small & beginners
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Stable consistent string that works well on smaller instruments and beginners instruments. I use them as part of a package of changes to improve the cheaper instruments that a lot of beginners start with.

Cons: Nothing really

Other: Won't transform an instrument on their own but with a reasonable bridge sound post and careful set can make a noticeable difference.
