Asked On: 04/18/2019

I recently purchased the Infeld PI strings and find them to be too harsh sounding. Even a friend commented on how different my violin sounded. I prefer a darker, richer sound. He recommended these Kaplan Amo strings. Prior to the Infeld's I was using Obligatos but switched hoping for a more richer sound. Dissappointed. Struggling with trying the Kaplan strings or going back to Obligatos. Recommendation please - or should I try a gut string - but afraid it might be too dark.

SHAR Answer:

PI strings are rather powerful and bright, which could sound harsh depending on the instrument. You will probably find the Kaplan Amo set to be much warmer and rounder in tone. Gut may be an option, but there are many warm synthetics to try as well. To speak with a specialist in our Customer Care Center, please call 1-800-248-7427, or email [email protected]
