Advanced stainless steel. Ametyst strings offer a pure and focused sound which is brighter than Karneol. Although they are intended for better instruments, they will improve the sound of all levels of violins. They have a synthetic core, and normally take approximately three days to achieve tuning stability and optimum tone quality.

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")

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.

A great E string

Pros: I really like this string - it is the only real contender for Pirastro Obligato gold plated E in my research so far! This E string is very reasonably priced and makes a great sound on my violin. Sounded good combined with Obligato GDA, and is also sounding good with Ametyst DA. Lots of strings corrode very quickly because of my sweaty hands but this one lasts well.

Cons: Not really - I will definitely buy more of these!

Keen Amateur

Great for folk fiddle, if you want more colour

Pros: I am fiddle player, as opposed to a violinist, mainly English andCeltic traditional. My instrument is a Leopold Widhalm ( mid - late 18th cent.) As most fidlle players have, I have used various brands of steel strings. But I was always aware that my instrument was capable of a better colouration of sound than was possible with steels. Enter Warchal Ametyst strings! Brilliant! All the tonal colouration you would expect with good synthetic core strings, but with that nice crisp steely sound, and good quick response. - Nigel.

Cons: Nothing (so far)!

Pros: The strings are every bit as good as I hoped. The e string is very good

Cons: None - they do take time to settle - but then all strings do.
