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
P.S. I forgot to mention that a "stickier" rosin is needed (such as Dominant) and you will want to clean your strings regularly.
These are the best strings I have ever used in my thirty years of violin playing. I have yet to find a violin on which they did not improve the sound. They compare favorably to Evah Pirazzi but have a rounder, warmer tone. I would like to see a set offered with the wound E string as the regular E tends to whistle if the bow is not reasonably straight, as with gold E strings. Also, titanium is a must. I have tried the plain Vision and they are shrill and scratchy without the titanium.
