Viola

"... it will be impossible to bring out a clear and even sound if one string is weaker or stronger than the next string (diameter) ..."
Leopold Mozart: Versuch einer gründlichen Violinschule, Augsburg 1756

Leopold Mozart’s writings advocating equal tension guides us in our string production.

Since the string length (vibrating length of the string measured from nut to bridge) of individual instruments differs, the string thicknesses should be chosen according to the string length.

We produce special pure gut C-strings for the viola.
By combining the traditional rope production methods with string making techniques, we were able to create a significantly thickened string.
Our string is very flexible, produces an audibly clearer sound and reacts more quickly to the bow compared to a string that has been thickened less.
C-strings produced in this fashion perform well.
Still it remains a string for those who enjoy experimenting with new things. It requires a flexible handling of the bow, advanced technique, and an approach in listening habits.

Wound strings are an important subject of research and testing. We are working on a viable solution.

Recommendation for playing at a frequency of A=415Hz: The following string set recommendations have the effect of equal tension on all strings.

Vibrating String Length 33/34 cm 35/36 cm 37/38 cm 39/40 cm
A 86 82 80 78
D 128 124 120 116
G 190 185 175 170
C 285 275 260 255
