Why do you want to change?
What kind of violin do you play?
How advanced a student are you, what music are you playing?

There are many types at the markets and I do not know which are suitable for me. Thank you in advanced.

Edited: February 9, 2018, 10:19 PM · 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.

The OP has stated 'the 10th year' I have to wonder if the strings have been on for 10 years.
