Handmade Strings Since 1919 from Vienna, Austria

In 1919 violin maker Dr. Franz Thomastik and civil engineering specialist Otto Infeld founded the company, invented the steel string and caused a revolution in the music world. Suddenly the conventional gut string was challenged by a new string with the highest quality of tone, precision and reliability. It was received enthusiastically by virtuosi across the world.

The string makes the music. The diversity and beauty of the musical timbre depend upon, on the one hand, the type of material used for the core and on the other hand, the material spun around the core. For a perfect sound, Thomastik-Infeld has consistently chosen steel and nylon as the string core material for bowed and plucked instruments.

The highest standards are guaranteed by ongoing research in Thomstik-Infeld's own research lab engaging a team of highly specialized technicians. However, tone perfection is achieved primarily by the delicate touch of fingers and the highly qualified staff in the workshops: Every string at Thomastik-Infeld is wound and checked by hand.


Does It Matter Which Type of String You Put On Your Instrument? Absolutely!

Choosing the correct strings has a huge influence on its tone, ease of playing, and even its well-being: the best and most expensive instrument will only sound average if it is incorrectly strung, while an average instrument can transcend its own limitations with the correct choice of strings. As a matter of fact, switching to better strings is the shortest and easiest way to producing better sound.

From nine decades experience with string research, string development and string production we can safely say that while "the one perfect string for everyone" does not exist, the perfect string for your instrument, playing style and musical repertoire is most likely a Thomastik-Infeld. Up-to-date know-how and long experience enable us to bring out the best in each stringed instrument, revealing and enhancing its tone, color and quality.

Thomastik-Infeld offers a broad choice of products to fit every instrument, musical style, and playing situation. All products are handmade in Vienna to highest manufacturing standards, satisfying the most discriminating musician. 

Welcome to Thomastik-Infeld, please make your choice!

    not good for "sweaty hands"

    these titanium strings were recommended for my daughter who has sweaty hands. She has to replace strings every 3-4 months. Unfortunately, 3 strings frayed and broke between 6 and 8 weeks of laying. The sound was beautiful, but they didn't last as long as others we've tried. ... (See Full Review)

    Good Synthetic String, But Not for Me

    My violin is an Albani made circa 1700. Its dimensions are slightly smaller than a typical full-size violin. It has a warm, soft, but rich tone, yet a powerful sound that projects well when sing Pirastro Eudoxa strings. Since the 1960s, my standard strings have been the Pirastro Eudoxa, although from time to time I used the less powerful Pirastro Gold Label when I didnt have enough money to buy the Eudoxa strings. Over the last three years, I have experimented with several strings offered by Shar Music: Larsen; Pirastro Eudoxa, Olive, Obligato, Evah Pirazzi, and Wonder Tone Solo; and Thomastick Dominants and Vision Titanium. So far, the most satisfactory sounding strings have been the Eudoxa and Olive. Before buying these strings, I spoke with two different Shar salespeople. Based upon what I told them about my violin and other strings I had used, they did not think that these strings would do well on my violin. Nonetheless, I decided to try them, as I had heard to much about them from fellow violinists. These strings sounded metallic from the moment they were put on the violin. While they did settle in as quickly as advertised, that metallic sound never left. Since I play two orchestras, rather than a country and western group, I never felt that my violin fit in with the other violins when using these strings. I also went through three E strings before deciding to make another change. One of my stand mates uses these strings and they really sound terrific on his violin, but they never sounded "right" on my violin. ... (See Full Review)
