Available for viola.

The first synthetic-core string is still a top seller for violin and viola players. The sound is brilliant and responsive. When they are first installed, they have a rather metallic and edgy sound that softens with a few days of playing. The E strings are available in steel or wound, though players often swap to a different. They last well, both physically and tonally. Their small-sized strings are also very popular, for their longevity and softness under the fingers.
Available for viola in standard medium.
Available for cello in standard and Soloist, in soft, medium or strong gauges. Available for 3/4 cello in medium gauge.
These are top level strings that are favourites with orchestral players and performance students. The ‘Soloist’ version is more powerful and bright.
Prelude (D’Addario, USA)
Available for violin 4/4, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, and 1/16.
Available for viola, including 14″ and 13″ C strings.
Available for cello 4/4, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8.
These are affordable, beginner student-quality strings. They provide a reliable, long-lasting option for school and hire instruments, the A, D, G and C strings being generally hard-wearing and very stable. They are quite warm compared to strings in the same price bracket.
