Though I don't recognize those strings, I hope that they don't break on you like the other ones. You should be able to keep the strings on your fiddle until it is time to change them for having used them too long.
In short it's nickel strings , I'm have been careful to my strings while tuning since I broke my G string(steel string) on my very first tuning. But if I have an extra money I'd like to buy a Thomastik Dominant strings because they said that it will make your violin sounds good, is that true?
Oh I see, I just broke the old 4th string (used by the old owner) because it was over tighten while I'm tuning it into G (it was tuned into other letters, yeah I'm using electric clip tuner)haha Practice = Success. Honestly I'm was inspired to play violin since I saw Sue Son and Henry Lau playing the 3rd movement of Summer by A. Vivaldi "Storm", someday I'll play that song too. Thanks
Yes, I think you will play it. In that case just stick to the cheap strings for now. Money doesn't grow on trees does it.
Thank you for your word of wisdom, It's the exact words who my dad is always reminding me, ..... I really miss him he works abroad because of low salary here in Phils. He's great and I'm really sure that you're a great father too. You reminds me of my dad Mr. Pierre. God bless
I generally buy from Musicians Friend. I'm sure there are better deals out there, but my older daughter plays piano, french horn, trumpet and now guitar, and I need the variety Musicians Friend affords. I use Dominants. I tried cheaper strings when I stopped playing with an Orchestra (when I graduated college), but after using Dominants for years they sounded wrong. I guess when you find something that works you stick with it. Why upgrade if you're happy with what you use?
Saying that I cheaper steel strings for my 8 yr old daughter. Good strings would be a waste for a 1/2 size violin and a child who isn't ready to commit to intense training. If it makes a noise approximating a violin she's happy.
How do you know when it is time to change your strings? I have 2 fiddles not sure when the strings where changed last. The 99 dollar fiddle I bought used and I think they may be the original strings. I also have an older Maggini I play at home those are at least 10 years old, but I haven't played it much in that amount of time.
Also what type and brand of strings do you recommend ?
