  • tonica

    Tonica (Pirastro – Germany)

    Tonicas have a fairly bright sound along with complexity, fullness and depth.  They can sound very good indeed on some violins but quite harsh and nasal on others – we have found them less versatile than the Corelli Crystal strings on student instruments.  Some people may find the strings to have a slightly slower response than other brands.

As a violin string, they are favourites with fiddlers,being a good choice if you want a bright, edgy sound, easy response and a low price.   (Available for cello.

  • violino

    Violino (Pirastro – Germany)

    Top Seller
    This string is similar to the Obligato, with a warm, clear, almost bell-like sound.  Though it lacks some of the complexity of the Obligato, it is also a little cheaper.  The quality, response and evenness of tone is better than similarly priced or cheaper strings, and Violino tends to be very consistent in giving a good sound, regardless of the violin.  These are lower-tension strings than Obligato and Pirazzi.

  • piranito

    Piranito (Pirastro, Germany)

    These are among the least expensive violin strings in the Pirastro range, but they have a reasonable sound for their low price, though the lower strings tend to be a bit dull. Piranito can be useful for small student instruments, including violin-sized violas.(Available for violin on request)

  • vision

    Vision (Thomastik-Infeld, Austria)

    Top Seller
    Visions are an excellent student string for those wanting an alternative to Dominants. These are suitable strings for beginner right through to advanced students, and can produce good, even exceptional results on some instruments.  On others, they can sound a little bright. Generally the sound is not as complex as that of the Vision Titanium strings.  Vision strings are currently cheaper than Dominant, and they are also available in fractional sizes.

    Prelude (D’Addario, USA)

    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. (Available for violin, viola and cello)
