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


Extra options:

  • 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
G string material Nylon, silver wound

How to order?

  • Select in the first field the size of your instrument (if applicable).
  • In the second field you can choose the type of string. You can order a full SET or individual strings.
  • In the third field you can select the tension you would like, if applicable.

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.

Which tension?

  • 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.
