Worldwide Bestseller, played by professionals, teachers, and students. The research and development process for Evah Pirazzi strings generated new ideas and techniques, and years of further refinement led to the world’s most advanced nylon-core string: Tonica.
• Tonica strings have a core made from nylon. • They produce a lively well-rounded sound, perfectly balanced across all four strings. • Responding instantly to any bowing style, they reward both player and listener with an open and direct sound. • With substantially reduced background 'hiss', players can sustain a more even tone helping to achieve smoother string crossings. • While giving positive feed back to your left hand, Tonica strings remain very easy to play right up into the highest positions. • Projection and brilliance have been upgraded. • However, this excess does not mean that the Tonica has lost its warmth. • Playing pianissimo has considerably improved. • All bow strokes are possible resulting in smooth crossings from one note to another. • Easy right hand articulation and tone attack. • Due to their medium string tension Tonica strings are suitable for all instruments. • Insensitive to variations in temperature and humidity • Standard vibrating length 37 cm ideal for full-size violas. The 40 cm and 43 cm vibrating lengths are for large-pattern, long string length violas
