viola strings


Recommended Posts

gut strings on tuners...never tried it...but i wouldnt, given the price of gut strings.

olivs are wonderful viola strings. the A tends to unravel quickly after installation sometimes. i prefer a "eudoxa-oliv" C string to either the Eudoxa or the Oliv C. they are massively expensive, and no matter where you buy em they'll cost $70 (w/o the A string) if not a lot more. if price is no object give it a whirl.

olivs can sound great, but i had a few issues with them when i was using them... i found they took forever to stretch out, and by the time they had actually finally decided to stay in tune, they had gone false.

yet i still used them for probably three or four years. go figure.
