Tonica - A New Formula for a trusted favorite string
With a formula based on a nylon core, Pirastro's Tonica strings produce a lively well-rounded sound, perfectly balanced across all four strings. They are know for their quick response to any bowing style, and reward both player and listener with an open and direct sound. With substantially reduced background 'hiss', players can sustain a more even tone helping to achieve smoother string crossings. With a highly responsive left hand feel, Tonica strings remain very easy to play all the way up to the highest positions.
