The Pirastro Tonica Violin D string has a silver winding on a synthetic core made from nylon. This is the standard D string but an aluminium wound D is also available which gives a warmer sound than the silver D.
The Tonica violin string has for many years been the trusted, favourite string producing a lively well-rounded sound, perfectly balanced across all four strings. Tonica strings respond instantly to any bowing style and reward both player and listener with an open and direct sound. With substantially reduced background ‘hiss’, players can sustain a more even tone. Due to the synthetic core the Tonica violin D string is insensitive to variations in temperature and humidity.
Available here as a single string or as part of a complete set, and in 4/4 size, 3/4-1/2 size and 1/4-1/8 size.
