Tonica strings have a core made from nylon. They produce a lively well-rounded sound, perfectly balanced across all four strings. Responding instantly to any bowing style, they 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, these strings remain very easy to play all the way up to the highest positions.
- The standard set contains: E-Silvery Steel, A-aluminum, D- and G-silver.
- The set E-Aluminum contains: E-steel wound with aluminum, A-aluminum, D- and G-silver.
Available in 4/4, 3/4 – 1/2, 1/4 – 1/8, 1/16 – 1/32
I love these strings! Bright with nice overtones and well balanced. Fast shipping also.
These strings are bright with great overtones, and sound much clearer on this particular violin I made than the slightly-used set of Dominants they replaced. For the price, they seem hard to beat.
As a professional violinist in a major American orchestra I’ve been buying 4/4 size strings for decades. I like a good middle of the road, quality, old school string. When it came to buy a set of 1/16 strings for my sons 1/32 size Violin this was one of only a few options. They fit well, not too long, and sound warm and present.
I believe my violin’s strings were dominants and lasted me a year and sounded just dull after a year, so I decided to try a new brand of string (pirastro) and may never go back to dominants. The tonica strings give a nice rounded sound.
I had these strings on my concert violin for about 7 months and I really enjoyed them. They were a little bright for my already brilliant violin which is why I tried viliano to try to warm things up a bit, but I can't complain about the tonica at all. They stay in tune very well!
