Recommended Viola Sizes
*Please note: SHAR has tested many D’Addario Prelude Viola strings and has found that the specific viola sizes printed on the packages do not accurately represent the actual sizes of violas that the strings fit. To avoid confusion, we have removed the sizes from the package images and will list the appropriate viola sizes here until D’Addario’s packaging is corrected so that you can continue to purchase these strings with confidence.
