Why do strings matter?
April 6, 2013 at 5:07 PM
Lots of string players forget about the importance of... the strings!
Strings are important for:
- the color of the sound of your violin (it can seem like you have a different instrument with different strings)
- your intonation (strings can 'waddle', so you can't play in tune)
- the feeling you have with the instrument (don't cut yourself with thin or damaged strings!)
In this video I demonstrate the difference between good strings and bad strings.
I hope this video is useful to you!
