Scaled to fit 1/2 size violin with a playing length of 11 1/2 inches (290mm), these medium tension strings are optimized to the needs of a majority of players. This is a plain steel E (tin-plated high-carbon steel) with no winding.
Pro-Arte synthetic core violin strings have a warm, mellow tone. They are less sensitive to humidity and temperature changes, and break in quickly. Pro-Arte strings are manufactured at a lower tension in order to maximize bow response, tonal blend and playability. The perfect choice for players seeking a warm, dark tone.
