About This Item

Overture Premium Violin Strings

Taking over three years to develop, the secret of Overture strings is in combining high quality precision German alloys, low cost, yet accurate, Chinese manufacturing, and SHAR's commitment to excellence. Our dedicated product development staff, all players themselves, went through countless prototypes from numerous established string manufacturers until they sounded, felt and played just right! And we didn't stop there - we inspect each new batch of strings to ensure that our high quality standards are constantly maintained. Overture strings are smooth, with a more direct texture, producing a tone that is clear, focused and relatively more brilliant and direct. Each student set includes two (2) E strings: one with a loop end and one with a ball end.

Oh, no! I broke a string! What should I do? Will this damage my instrument?

SHAR Answer:

No worries, it’s okay! This definitely happens now and then and it’s nothing to be too worried about. Unless all four strings broke at the same time (highly unlikely) and the bridge completely collapsed, it’s unlikely that there is any damage at all to your instrument. If it’s just simply one string that broke, then you’ll just need to purchase a new one and install it.

Unfortunately, broken strings cannot be repaired. They need to be replaced if they are broken. You can usually find them at a local violin shop. You can buy an individual string (only the A string, for example), if that's the one that's broken, or we also sell strings in a set of all four strings (E, A, D & G for violin and A,D,G & C for viola and cello). We sell a wide variety of brands of strings here at Shar--you can order them here online or over the phone. Our customer care representatives can help you place an order for new strings at 800.248.7427.

It's fairly uncommon for strings to just randomly snap. This is more likely to happen if the strings are older, worn out, or not in good condition. That’s why it’s a good idea to replace your strings periodically (their longevity will depend on how much you play) and keep your strings/instrument in proper condition. It’s also a good idea to purchase and keep an extra set of strings handy in your case, just in case a string breaks right before a lesson or performance and you need to replace it.

Are these ball ends?

SHAR Answer:

Yes. They have little metal rings called balls on one end. This is the end that goes inside of the tailpiece. For instructions on how to change a string, check out this video.

Question by:

  • POPULAR SHAR STAFF QUESTION
  • ANN ARBOR, MI

Asked On: 06/21/2016

When I’m purchasing an E string for violin (or A string for viola), what’s the difference between a ball end and a loop end?

SHAR Answer:

Strings have two ends: one end that gets threaded into the peg (this is the case for every string you buy) and the other end that gets attached to the tailpiece via a fine tuner (also called string adjuster). They form tension/traction between the two ends of the instrument; that’s what makes them have sound when played. This is the case for all stringed instruments. >>For cellists & bassists, cello and bass strings are always ball end. This question doesn’t apply to them. For violinists & violists, keep reading! The lower three strings (A, D, G for violin or D, G, C for viola) will ALWAYS have ball-ends in the synthetic and steel brands, so you won’t need to worry about those. The tailpiece-end of the E string on a violin (or A string on a viola) can come in different options: either a ball end, a loop end or a ‘removable ball’ end. What will determine which string (loop or ball end) you’ll buy? It depends on which type of tailpiece or fine tuners (also called string adjusters) your violin has. You’ll have to take a look and see. The differences: A Ball End--it has a ball lodged inside the end of the string, designed to insert into the tailpiece and stay inside there. This is the most common type of E string that a beginner or young child would most likely use. A Loop End--it has a loop that goes over a prong that is attached to a fine tuner. It’s more common in full size instruments. A ‘Removable Ball’ End—it comes with a ball end that can be removed/plucked out to reveal a loop-end. Not all ball end strings are removable! Some brands have ‘removable ball’ strings. ‘Removable Ball’ strings will be marked as such, and non-removable ball-end strings will just be listed as ‘Ball’ under End type. When in doubt, or when buying strings as a surprise gift for someone else, you could choose a ‘removable ball’ end and it should work. Still not sure? Read this article.

What is the composition material of these strings?

SHAR Answer:

Overture Strings have a steel core with an aluminum magnesium alloy winding. If you’re interested in learning more about the different composition materials used inside different strings, that information can be found here.
