The Pirastro Tonica Violin E string is a silvery steel steel as standard. There is also the option of having an aluminium wound E string which gives a warmer sound than the standard E.
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 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.
The Tonica E is available with either a loop or ball end and available here as a single string or as part of a complete set. Comes in 4/4 size, 3/4-1/2 size and 1/4-1/8 size.
