Wound on an advanced synthetic core, the Infeld Red strings give violinists the warmth and depth and projection of a world class string.
State of the art synthetic core strings with perfectly matched tensions enable customization of sound covering the entire tonal spectrum. By using Infeld violin strings, players can achieve their tonal preferences in a single string brand. Many players mix and match the Red and Blue sets to correct or adjust the sound of their instrument.
Difference between Infeld Red and Blue Sets:
The red set will produce a rather dark sound on the majority of violins, while the blue set will tend to bring out the instrument's brilliance. It is very common to mix and match these two sets.
- E - string: Gold-plated chromesteel
- A & D strings: Hydronalium-wound over composite core
- G - string: Silver wound over composite core
- Available Size is only 4/4.
- Medium only
For the most part I like the Thomastik Infeld Red Violin String Set
The strings are really nice. They are very soft to the fingers. They settled in really quick. These are easy to play on. The only issue I have is that I am not a fan of the “E” string. Since this is preference and instrument dependent, this does not knock the set down from a five star review. It is just a preference call. The strings are great, settled down quickly, hold their tune beautifully, and are easy to finger and play. If the E string was not an issue, I would say I would buy them again. I tend to stick to complete sets, not mix and match. Playing status: Self-teaching Student, with a long way to go Violin: 1847(?) Professional level violin, not student Violin tone: Has an open warm leaning sound when played by a professional. I hope this is helpful.
