Spirocore Viola C String, Chrome (S22), Silver (S21) or Tungsten (S24)
Spirocore strings have a flexible multiwire spiral rope core. They offer a longer period of musical vibration and significantly reduce inertia. Spirocore strings are equally effective when playing arco or pizzicato. They are highly responsive and long lasting.
- Chrome, Silver, or Tungsten wound on multiwire spiral rope core
- Medium tension
- Ball end
Tungsten C is amazing on a 5-string
My luthier pointed me to these, and they're wonderful. They pack the same or similar mass into a smaller volume (if you've not encountered it, tungsten as dense as gold), so the string doesn't have to vibrate as much, and they reduce the times the C string feels sort of flabby on the shorter scale of a violin. They are about twice as expensive, but my luthier says they last twice as long. I just know they sound great and they're easier and more reliable to play on.
