The strings are a very important component of the violin, since they are responsible for producing the sonority by rubbing them with the bow or pressing them with the fingers (pizzicato).

The strings of the violin correspond, from more serious to sharper, to the notes SOL, RE, LA, MI, tuned to each other by fifth intervals. The more serious, the thicker the rope will be to maintain a good tension ratio and thus be able to vibrate properly.

Thypes of violin strings

In our shop you will find violin strings of a wide variety of materials: metal strings, gut, composite fiber, synthetic materials... So that you can choose the one that best suits your tastes and needs.

Here are some features of the main rope types.

1) Gut strings: initially, the string of the violin was formed exclusively by gut strings. They are very sensitive to moisture and environmental changes, and the finest - the sharp ones - are poorly resistant. Even so they have very good sound, a warm sound and rich in nuances. They are often used in baroque and ancient instruments because, in addition to their sound faithful to the original, they make less pressure on the violin, which was formerly made with less thick covers than modern violins covers.

2) Metal strings: they are less elastic than the gut strings, and therefore do not vibrate as much. Its tone is metallic and its sonority more acute and strong, but they lose sonority. They are comfortable in that they resist the environmental changes and do not disintegrate as often as the gut, but they exert twice the pressure on the instrument. That is why they are not usually used in old instruments, and yes in modern ones, that have thicker covers and a strong harmonic bar.

3) Synthetic strings: is the type of rope that is currently used, due to its relationship between quality and price. They have a gut-like sound, but brighter, and are easier to play and last longer. Compared with metal ropes, they are sweeter and last less. It is usual that in strings of synthetic cords my rope is metallic, since it is thinner and with this material it resists more.


Which is the price of violin strings?

As everything in regards to music, it will depend on the range in which you want to shuffle options. It should also be said that not all strings of the same model are worth the same since, normally, the thicker the string, the higher its price will be. If you want to buy basic violin strings, prices will be lower, but the sound of strings will be flatter and more mundane. If instead you want to buy professional violin strings, your price will increase but you will gain a lot in regards to sound quality.

A basic set of strings for violin (with four strings G-D-A-E), usually has a price of around 40 euros. If you are looking for professional violin strings, the set costs around 80 or 90 euros.
