Infeld blue & Red Es to Goldbrokat.

April 12, 2005 at 08:31 PM · Hi! I would like to know how do the Infeld Blue and Red E strings compare to the Goldbrokat E?

Which one in ur opinion is best for clearness, brightness, warmth and power? Thanks :)

The Infeld Blue is steel, the Infeld Red Gold-plated. They are very different from the Goldbrokat. Depends what you are looking for in a string, and what you are using for the A,D,G.


April 13, 2005 at 07:19 AM · I am using Evah Pirazzi medium gauge on A,D and G.

I would like to find a steel E string (not gold-plated) that has the same or similar warmth, clarity, power and brightness to a gold-plated E

(gold-plated Es whistle easy..). Trying to find if the Infeld-Blue E or the Jargar E would fit the descriptions... :)

December 4, 2007 at 07:28 AM · I love my Infeld Red E, as I discussed in one of my blogs.

December 6, 2007 at 10:39 PM · I love the Goldbrokat E and now use Infeld Red for A and D and Blue for G. The E, at least for me, has been the least forgiving on my violin until the Goldbrokat.
