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
