These are our best-selling strings! We introduced these strings in the Fall of 2006 - and they have since outsold every other student steel string we carry - combined!

Taking over three years to develop, the secret of Overture strings is in combining high quality precision German alloys, low cost, yet accurate, Chinese manufacturing, and Shar's commitment to excellence. Our dedicated product development staff, all players themselves, went through countless prototypes from numerous established string manufacturers until they sounded, felt and played just right! And we didn't stop there - we inspect each new batch of strings to ensure that our high quality standards are constantly maintained.

We also went through extensive play testing during the development process, comparing Overture strings not just to student steel strings, but to much more expensive synthetic core strings. Our play testers, all professional players themselves, had this to say:
"Overture Violin Strings sound very good on every instrument tested (from Hoffmann Prelude up through the Collectors Series Emiliani Strad), these strings definitely play better than all other Chinese strings tested. They also play better than other popular students brands. Given allowances for differences in core construction, we even found that they hold their own against many expensive synthetic core strings. They are full, loud, well-balanced with good sound and are easy to play."

The Shar Apprentices feel that Overture strings are smooth, with a more direct texture, producing a tone that is clear, focused and relatively more brilliant and direct. We back up our claims with an unparalleled guarantee - if you do not like the Overture strings, for any reason whatsoever, simply return them within 30 days, and we will give you a complete refund. What other string brand guarantees that you will be pleased with their sound? Players like you have tried these and found that our years of effort have paid off? Find out for yourself today!

    Overture Strings

    I was looking for a string that wasn't so expensive as synthetic strings for my students, yet I didn't want the sound, especially for small ensembles, of cheap steel strings. I had them try hese. The sound is so much more complex than the thin sound of steel strings. They blend well in an ensemble, stay in tune, and feel more like expensive synthetic strings. You have to give them a little break in-time and they don't last as long as steel strings, but definitely worth it! ... (See Full Review)

    Good for fiddles!

    These do a nice job for fiddling. Bright & they stay in tune. I think the alloy adds some warmth vs. all steel. Can't beat the price, either!
