High Quality synthetic core strings. Hydronalium on synthetic core.

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.

Well worth trying.

Pros: I like them. This is my second set. They settle in quickly, last longer than other popular brands, the sound from each string is well balanced and they have just the right amount of brilliance for my violin.

Cons: None

Other: The E-string sometimes 'whistles' but now I am convinced that it is my technique that needs more attention. The E-string needs a more focused touch - especially when crossing from the A-string to the E-string at speed.

Fine quality violin strings

Pros: Good value for strings of this calibre. They are well balanced tonally, of medium tension and resonant.

Cons: They take about three days to settle which is quite normal.
