Manufacturer's Description

  • 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.
  • Whilst 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.

I Like Tonica Strings March 4, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  

love Tonica strings because they result in a perfect balance of warmth, brilliance and power on every violin I've tried them on. They offer a wide range of tonal colours and are great value for money.

Excellent strings at a reasonable price August 21, 2015
Reviewer: K Wright from Lexington, KY United States  
My daughter's violin teacher recommended these strings as an excellent quality string at a reasonable price, and he was correct.  This is our second purchase of Pirastro Tonica's, and my daughter loves them.

Fast shipping, Great Quality December 14, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Lexington, KY United States  
We recently purchased these strings for our daughter's full size violin based on the recommendation of our violin teacher. We have always purchased Dominants in the past but found these to be of the same quality at a more affordable price point. Would highly recommend these strings as well as Fisher Violins -- fast, free shipping at a great price!
