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.
Ratings & Reviews
These strings have a very warm sound on my instrument. They aren't as punchy as the Eva's but I prefer the tone. I thought the Infeld Blue were a bit grainy, at least on my violin.
One of the Best
I love them! The lower strings make a really warm and rich tone and the gold-plated E gives a lovely and spectacular ring. The only downside to these strings is that I also have the same problem as the first reviewer. The rosin often doesnt grip the string, causing my bow to slide around, especially on the G string. Even though this occurs sometimes, I still would highly recommend these strings to anyone. I have had an amazing experience with them, and I hope you do too.
Good nice and bright but not too bright lots of ring sounds nice on my Guarneri carlo lamberti master violin.I used the G,D and A string not the E string
Warm but not long wearing
The A and G windings broke after 10 months of use, about 1 hour per day. D and G are warm. E whistles.
Red Infeld Gold-plated E String whistles
I like all the strings in the set other than the gold-plated E. They add warmth and depth to my instrument. The E string, however, whistled horribly until I replaced it.
Donít buy these- they do t last!
Bought a set of Infeld Red violin strings. Horrible. The winding on the A string broke in less than 2 months, and the G string did the same shortly after. The gold-plated E string whistles like crazy. Problem went away as soon as I swapped it with another string.
OUT of STOCK!!???
Please get more in, okay?
I love the sound of these strings, particularly the 'E'. However, the string covering on the 'G', 'D' and 'A' is so smooth that the rosin fails to grip it with the result being that your bow will wander badly while playing - this is with 'hard' and 'soft' rosins. So, this is why I say that they are too technologically advanced. It's too bad because they sound so good. I will still use the 'E' string. I have played two sets of the Infeld Red strings.
