If your violin strings keep breaking near the pegs or near the tailpiece, it could mean there is extra friction being applied to the string/s, causing them to break or snap. We recommend having your violin examined by a luthier (string instrument repairer) to avoid breakages in the future. When fitting any new strings to your violin, be sure to slowly tighten the string to avoid breakages.

If your violin strings sound squeaky, it may mean that you need to use less rosin on your bow, to prevent a raspy tone from occurring, or you may need to replace your strings. Strings are crafted using precious metals and materials that deteriorate over time. If your violin strings are over a year old and sounding squeaky, chances are they need to be replaced. Book an online or in-store appointment with us to determine the source of the squeaking sound today.

With our headquarters in Atlanta, GA, we have served the Southeast as a premier violin shop for more than two decades. As a instrument retailer and Luthier, we specialize in the sale, rental, repair, and restoration of stringed instruments, including the violin, cello, viola, and bass.

Our services include professional repair and restoration for violins, basses, violas, cellos, and violin bows.

If the violin, cello, bass, or viola is of fine quality, it has potential to be fully restored. Certain types of repairs are more challenging and costly, but our highly skilled violin repair and restoration professionals can deliver outstanding results. Just bring us your violin or other string instrument and let us determine whether it can be restored.

GUT COREThese are the original type of strings and their design goes back several centuries. Typically made from sheep intestines, gut strings are lower tension than synthetic- or steel-core strings and have a complex tone that is rich with overtones. Because of the low tension and winding method, they are more pliable under the fingers than other strings, tend to have slower response, and require players to finesse the sound from their instruments with the bow. Gut-core strings also need more frequent tuning, especially if there is a rapid change in room temperature, like stepping under hot stage lights.

The violin E strings are available in three different types: plain steel, plated steel, and wrapped steel. The original is the plain steel E. In recent years, a number of steel E strings plated with various materials like tin, gold, and platinum have been introduced. The gold-plated steel E, for example, has a brilliant, clear, pure sound that many like, though they do tend to wear out quickly (the gold-plating wears off, and some instruments tend to whistle when going from the A to open E).

Each violin, viola, cello, or bass has its own tonal characteristics that may be improved by a skilled luthier. If you would like to fine-tune the sound of your properly adjusted instrument, you may want to experiment with different strings.

The ideal instrument is balanced on all four strings, with no single string jumping out in comparison to the others. Sadly, the reality is different, leading many string players to mix and match strings to get the best sound out of the instrument.

If you have an unbalanced instrument, the first step should be taking it to a qualified luthier for an adjustment. Sometimes, just moving the soundpost can make a difference. If you want to solve a balance problem by changing strings, start first by trying a different gauge on the offending string. Thomastik introduced the Infeld Red and Blue strings (red=darker, blue=more brilliant) with the idea that you can mix and match them to get a proper balance. Keep in mind that if you mix different brands and types of strings, a difference in tension might affect the sound of the other strings as well. You may also find the difference in actual thickness of strings to be distracting.

Most non-professional violinists replace their strings every 300 playing hours or so. That works out to about every three to six months. More serious students and professionals change strings more frequently. Since this routine maintenance task takes place so often, it makes sense for musicians to learn how to do it themselves.

Please Note: Violin strings should be changed one at a time to maintain tension on the bridge and the sound post. Removing all four of the strings at once can cause the bridge and the sound post to collapse.

The violin has for strings tuned in fifths. From low to high: G D A E. There are also 5 string violins, mostly electric, that have an extra lower C string. In this way you have the tuning of a violin and a viola on one instrument.

The name catgut is confusing. There are two explanations for the mix up.Catgut is an abbreviation of the word cattle gut. Gut strings are made from sheep or goat intestines, in the past also from horse, mule or donkey intestines. Whatever was available if you were a budding 17th century fiddler.Otherwise catgut could be from the word kitgut or kitstring. Kit meant fiddle, not kitten.Gut core strings are the oldest type of violin strings, but they are certainly not outdated. A lot of violin players, certainly in the historically informed performance movement, play with gut strings. Usually they choose for the unwinded gut strings, like used in the past. Modern gut strings have a winding and are more similar to modern strings.

Thomastik Dominants are still the gold standards and used by Hilary Hahn and Anne Sophie Mutter. However, a lot changed in the last decades and there are a lot of synthetic core violin strings to choose from.

I am on my third set of Jargar Violin Classic metal core strings but with their Silver Sound G which permits one to really pull out a more rich complex sound. I think that the D string could be more complex but that would mean (perhaps) a silver wrapping just like the Silver Sound G string. The A and E stings are quite powerful and focussed. The violin is an 1886 German Strad copy but provides the almost perfect sound at this moment. Hope this may be of some use to other violinists ?

For example, a classical violinist's strings might not be right for a blue grass fiddler, and vice versa. Some instruments will respond better to some strings than other. String vary in their sound, playability, volume and responsiveness. Each instrument is unique and each player is unique. The Three Basic Types of Violin Strings:Synthetic core strings are by far the most popular type of strings, because they are more stable than fickle gut strings but have most of the tonal colors of gut strings, generally speaing. Gut core strings are regarded as having the best tone, but they need to be tuned more often and react to changes in the weather, generally speaking. Steel strings are generally for specialized uses.Gut Strings. For centuries, all musical strings were made of pure sheep gut -- not cat gut, as is popularly believed. In the 16th century, the lower strings (which were the thickest) were wrapped with silver wire to increase mass. Today, gut strings have a gut core and are not entirely made of gut. According to string maker Damian Dlugolecki, "Since wire of silver or copper is several times heavier than gut, applying one, two, or three threads of wire in open wound fashion to a gut string, you create a string equal in tension at a given pitch to a pure gut string of considerably greater diameter." 041b061a72
