kind of strings for violin
I am a student in advanced level. What kind of string should I buy?
What kind(s) of strings have you used?
I sometimes feel like these questions are jokes, or at least bait to get a long-winded thread started that's been hashed and rehashed dozens of times on this forum.
The old strings are worn out, I play classic violin and I am at the 10th year.
For an affordable, good sounding all around string that last well try Tonica by Pirastro
it's hard for me to understand how a student at an advanced level would not know anything about strings. In My Humble Opinion...aside from a proper set up (which should be a given for a student at an advanced level) strings would be the single most important factor for sound and how the violin plays.
Cheap synthetics, like the above-mentioned Tonicas, are all good choices.
