PRIM VIOLIN - SET
Prim violin strings are a quality steel core string that offer solid performance at a very reasonable price.
Prim Violin Strings are used by a wide range of musicians. Long-lasting, with quick response and a bright powerful sound they are for example used by students at all levels, in Blue Grass, folk music and many other fields.
The Strings are available in three gauges; Soft, Medium and Orchestra.
Orchestra is the heaviest gauge.
Medium Gauge suits most instruments well, but be sure to experiment; in many instruments, the best sound is obtained by using a combination of different gauges!
The Medium strings are also available for small sized violins (3/4, 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8).
All strings are sold as individual strings as well as Sets.
Really like these
Really like these strings for Bluegrass and old time style fiddleing. I have an old Maggini fiddle that I wanted to add some brightness and volume to, and these strings did the trick. They settled in very quickly and stay in tune quite well. I'm going to try a set on another fiddle that I use to jam with. The extra volume these strings have, helps cut through in a jam or group session, especially if there's a banjo present.
Fiddle player weighing in
Just to give a little clarity to the "better for fiddle playing vs. classical" discussion, in old-time music (perhaps not as much in bluegrass), it is VERY common to change tunings several times during a session. Whereas classical is almost exclusively played in "standard" tuning, there are many other tunings in old-time (ADAE, AEAE, GDGD, AEAC#, DDAD, etc.), and the Prims are very commonly chosen because they settle into new tunings very quickly. Helicores seem to be the other most common string in OT music. I love the sound of the synthetic core strings, but I got tired of my fiddle drifting out of tune for the first several minutes after changing tunings.
Received my order promptly. Very satisfied!

I liked the D'Adderio Zyrtec strings much better, so I bought them from you. I am completely satisfied with Fiddlerman!
