Pirastro Tonica Violin E, Silvery steel or Aluminium on steel. Aluminium on steel is equivalent to the standard Dominant Aluminium E and is easier to play by beginners and intermediates. The steel E gives a brilliant and focused sound more suited to advanced and professional players.

Using a loop end E? The use of a protector to prevent the tuner hook breaking the string is essential with loop end E strings. We cannot accept claims for strings broken by the adjuster hook. Click here to purchase this item.

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.

A string with a good tone that settled quickly

Pros: Prompt delivery. String held its pitch after a couple of tunings so settled very well. My student noticed the difference in quality of tone straight away so would buy again.

Cons: None
