What Viola Strings Are Right For You?

Shar Music carries an extensive range of viola strings from all of your favorite brands. Whether you're a beginning player looking for high-response steel strings or a professional violist who needs that classic, subtle catgut sound, we have something that's perfect for you!

This chart is designed to help every violist find the right viola strings for them. Strings near the top are more direct and soloistic, while strings near the bottom lean more to the subtle side. Strings to the left have a warmer sound; a jog to the right offers more brilliant strings.

Are you a beginner just getting the hang of pulling a good sound from your instrument? Your best best is probably the area in the middle right (nearest to "brilliant"), where you'll findRed Label, D'Addario'sPrelude, and other excellent beginner strings. Many intermediate players — and especially those playing as part of a group — would do well to aim closer to the center of the chart, where you'll find the likes of Thomastik Infeld'sDominantand Pirastro'sPassione. Advanced Soloist? In many cases, you'll probably be inclined more towards the top, where you'll find celebrated strings like Larsen'sVirtuosoor Dogal'sCapriccio.
