Our Favorite & Most Often Recommended Viola Strings
Synthetic Viola Strings
Most classical players choose synthetic strings for their richness of tone and ease of play. They have a wider dynamic range and are easier to play than traditional gut strings.
Genuine Gut Viola Strings
If complexity of tone and a rich, organic sound are your priority, then consider trying gut strings. Note that the low tension of gut strings demands greater precision of finger placement to stay in tune. If trying gut for the first time, we recommend Passione.
