Tonica Violin Strings

Features

 
  • Tonica strings have a core made from nylon.
  • They produce a lively well-rounded sound, perfectly balanced across all four strings.
  • Responding instantly to any bowing style, they reward both player and listener with an open and direct sound.
  • With substantially reduced background 'hiss', players can sustain a more even tone helping to achieve smoother string crossings.
  • With a highly responsive left hand feel, Tonica strings remain very easy to play all the way up to the highest positions.
  • Projection and brilliance have been upgraded.
  • However, this excess does not mean that the Tonica has lost its warmth.
  • Playing pianissimo has considerably improved.
  • All bow strokes are possible resulting in smooth crossings from one note to another.
  • Easy right hand articulation and tone attack.
  • Due to their medium string tension Tonica strings are suitable for all instruments.
  • Insensitive to variations in temperature and humidity
