How to order?

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.
