About This Item

A revolution in tonal sound and color for the discerning musician, Peter Infeld (PI) strings produce a rich spectrum of sound colors, the perfect blend of power & elegance, and a wide dynamic range. The strings deliver instant bow response, as well as superior tuning ability.

Choose from Tin, Gold, and the unique Platinum plated E strings, and the Aluminum or Silver wound D strings to achieve a made-to-measure sound for each individual instrument and player. E-strings have a removable ball.


A Total Game Changer
Just in the way that technological advances in racket strings have turned tennis into a game that bears no resemblance to the game of the past, PI strings will change how we play the violin. 

These strings take acceptable violins and transform them into world class instruments.
- Steven Shipps, Professor of Violin, University of Michigan

Best Strings Ever
As a concertmaster for some of Hollywood's greatest films I place great demands on the strings I use. [They] are simply the best strings I ever played and they are my new companions in the recording studio.
- Endre Granat, Concertmaster

Extra Brilliance
Peter Infeld Strings provide me with the extra brilliance, quick response and ring that I desire on my violin. 
- Glenn Dicterow, Concertmaster, New York Philharmonic

About This Brand

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.
