Hey everyone. So I need to purchase a set of strings for my new electric violin. I was going to just purchase a set of helicores but after some googling it seems they may to 'bright' for an electric. Dominants seem to be the choice for electric. I enjoy the darker tones and music produced by the violin as well, will dominants be a step in that direction?
p.s. Can anyone tell me what the numbers on violin strings mean, I have a yamaha electric so it needs ball ends, does it need a specific number
yes it seems most of the strings are ball type by default unless otherwise indicated. Thanks Kevin for filling me in on the (possible) meaning, I'll take it's not as important as I thought (something like length of the string) You mind if I ask what style of music you play, are you into fiddling? classical? I'm looking for warmth not so much bright or responsive, again I am just starting on the violin (well when I get my bow and strings I will be!)
thats funny i'll just wait for it to return, my fear was you possibly updating your prices and both the bow and pro-arte strings are on sale
I'll wait it out and put my order when it's back up, thank you for the speedy response Pierre!
by the way its nice to know you are the source of your shop, and its not just a front for another distributor like so many other sites, I'd much rather support you over big websites like amazon!
