My opinion on the D’Addario Prelude for violin

The Prelude is a student string that allows a pleasant playing and a good learning of the instrument thanks to its durability. It is thanks to their pure steel core that they have such a long life. They are also an economical choice because of their low price.

Although available in sizes ranging from the whole to the sixteenth, which is quite rare, they are only available in medium tension. However, this is not really a problem since it is the most likely choice for a student instrument, whether modern or antique.

I therefore recommend them to young and beginner musicians who have a limited budget but who would like to take advantage of a reliable product that will accompany them for a long time in the study of their instrument.
