Asked On: 07/08/2018

What kind of strings do you recommend for this violin?

SHAR Answer:

This violin is typically sold with a set of Thomastik Vision violin strings, but if you were interested in experimenting with strings, any set of 4/4 size violin strings will work on this instrument. I hope this helps!
