Violin strings D'Addario Kaplan Vivo
Kaplan Vivo violin strings belong to the newest sets by D'Addario. They offer a powerful, projecting sound that doesn't become shrill, and are ideal to brighten up darker sounding instruments.
The D'Addario Kaplan Amo/Vivo strings sets are a new family of strings for violin by D'Addario, launched in 2015. The Kaplan Amo strings put their focus on rich overtones, warmth and flexibility (ideal for instruments that sound loud by nature), while the Kaplan Vivo strings provide brilliance and unmatched clarity (for instruments that sound dark or dull by nature).
Both the Kaplan Amo and Vivo strings sets may have a kind of metallic edge at first, but after a short play-in period they develop into truly amazing strings with an excellent life span. Both sets belong to D'Addario's top-end segment and are quickly gaining in popularity with professional as well as semi-pro/advanced amateur musicians!

Ball or loop end?E strings on a violin and A strings on a viola can come in two versions: with a ball end or with a loop end. The ball end string has a small ball at the end that you insert into your (finetuner) tailpiece. A string with a loop end has a small loop that fits over a small hook on the E or A string side of your finetuner tailpiece.

- Medium tension: this is the most used tension, because the manufacturer has taken it as a standard that works well for most instruments. If you're not sure which tension you need, always take medium tension.
- Strong tension: thicker string, that usually sounds louder than medium tension but is less responsive and more difficult to play.
- Light tension: thinner string that sounds slightly less loud, but usually is more responsive and easier to play.
