The strings that came with my now month old Viola must have been made on a Friday. The G string was frayed at the bridge when I first got it. Fiddlerman sent me another and Im grateful. Tonight Im watching TV when I hear "TWANG" and notice my Viola swinging lightly on its hanger, walk over and look and see the A string has broke at the peg.
Guess Im out of commission until I get a set, thing I'll go steel
I wouldn't go steel. Only in the E string. Steel had a tendency to stretch slowly and be stiff. This makes it easier to break. If it stretches moderately easy it will be more likely to be durable.
Good, Better, Best.
Until your Good is Better and your better is BEST.
By the way, I reread my comments and didnt mean to sound snotty. It was early morning and my back is out again so not in the best of moods.
Really man , it's no biggie ...i was joking anyway ...guess i should have put in a jk ...Fully half of the folks that compete in the VMAAI have steel and the other half syn ...so much so that the testing fer final tone is done in each one ....only last year they tied and had to go to a play off ...syn won in the end by a close margin ...
There has all-ways been a controversy over what is gained or lost between the two I have Preludes on one , Helicore on another , Tonica on another and Obligato on yet another ..i know yer an old cowboy and this ain't yer first rodeo , ride the horse ya like the best ...Ye Hah ...oh ley de i oh ...
