We highly recommend thestiffversions of the Oliv G and D strings for most players. They produce a richer and somewhat darker tone. They are also more powerful and can take a heavier bow stroke without crushing the sound.
For a more brilliant sound, consider using the silver-wound D with the stiff G.
The Oliv D comes in three options. Thesilver-woundis the most brilliant in color. The standardgold-aluminum-woundD is warmer and more complex. Thestiff, gold-aluminum-woundD is the richest in tone color and offers the greatest dynamic range.
Oliv String Ends
Oliv E strings come in a choice of ball or loop end. It is important to purchase the correct string for your setup. Oliv A strings are made with a ball end. Oliv D and G strings come with aknotend, which should be installed in the same fashion as a ball-end string. (Do not install as a loop-end string.)
Olive - The Noble Sound

The sheep gut core of the Oliv strings is manufactured, wound and polished in the traditional way, by hand.
Musicians such as Ilya Gringolts use Oliv strings as they offer the possibility "to explore the remotest corners of sound".
The sound is brilliant. Oliv strings offer the typical beautiful sound of gut strings.
The tone is rich and complex.
