Violin strings D'Addario Pro Arte
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.
The standard set contains following strings:
- E string: steel, unwound
- A string: nylon, aluminum wound
- D string: nylon, aluminum wound
- G string: nylon, silver wound
- E string aluminum wound: warmer, richer sound than the plain E
- D string silver wound: thinner string, somewhat more powerful and with more projection than aluminum D string
|E string core||Steel, unwound (set string) or aluminum wound|
|A string material||Nylon, aluminum wound|
|D string material||Nylon, aluminum wound|

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.
