Neutral but rather warm
Pirastro Tonica violin strings features
The Tonicastrings are the third and most successful interpretation of Dominantby Pirastro.
Tout d’abord, nous parlons de la nouvelle Tonicaformula. In fact, it is a new version still designed with a nylon core but with some improvements.
As far as these improvements are concerned, and for those who knew the old versions, the changes are quite interesting. Indeed, although they are still neutral, the focus has been on brilliance and projection. Moreover an effort has been made on the response, and they are much more sensitive to the slightest touch of the bow. They still retain the warmth of synthetic strings of this type. Finally, it would be wrong not to mention the increased playability and the very even balance between the strings.
There is also an alternative version of the chanterelle. This will then be wound with an aluminum ribbon rather than a bare silver steel cord. This actually gives it a warmer, deeper sound and causesless whistling from the bow strokes.
This string set is recommended by many teachers and also very popular on small violins. That’s why Pirastro decided to manufacture these strings in fractional sizes up to 1/32. However, all the games are only available in one tension, which is rather average.
