The Karneol string set produces well-balanced velvety tones, giving warmth and texture to your sound. They have a synthetic core, and normally require three days to achieve tuning stability and optimum tone quality.
Metal core as well as Synthetic core A strings are available. The sound of the synthetic A string matches the set perfectly. However aluminium or hydronalium wound A strings are less durable than those with a metal core so we wanted to give players a choice.
Viola strings are available in two scales.
Medium Vibrating Length 14“ – 15“ (36 – 38 cm)
Long Vibrating Length 15“ – 15.75“ (38 – 40cm)
Please note that we don‘t state body size but vibrating string length.For instruments with exactly 38 cm vibrating length we advise choosing our medium size viola strings.
