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
"I think these strings for viola D, G, C are an improvement from Dominant strings. I find these strings to produce more sound production while maintaining the sensitive response and overtone colors of the older model successful dominant strings. They respond immediately even on c string and they also are more stable to staying in tune after much intensive playing. They have a slightly brighter Quality than dominant so if you have a very dark instrument that has trouble cutting through chamber music or solo playing these strings I would recommend it.

Just a and d
I was not crazy about the Vision A string. Fortunately (?) I did not have to suffer with its bright brittle sound long because it snapped on the fourth day I had it on. The D seems more responsive than the Evah D but lacks the warmth and depth of Evah
I was not happy with these strings. Within a month I had replaced the A & D strings for going false. Not much depth to the sound. They are very overpriced for the poor quality of the strings. I went back to obligatos
More overtones than Dominant, with similar playability and longevity. Slightly brighter and louder, but the first set I got had a false G. This will be my second set, so we'll see if it was a fluke. Overall, I like the strings on my viola, which needs help on volume.
