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.
Ever since I tried them for the first time they’ve been my favorite strings, especially for recitals and chamber music. They have great sound and projection, and very quick response. I like the G string in particular and I often use Westminster or Goldbrokat E strings with them. The only downside is that they wear off very quickly. Still give them the 5 stars because I really love and recommend them.
I am an amateur player. Strings are delightfully responsive and have strong overtones. In tuning, I can hear beats as well as difference tones. However, I am producing much more frequent open string whistles, especially on E.
These are a great set of strings with a large palette of colors and they are powerful yet warm IMHO
My favorite strings! Beautiful colors and clear tone
"These strings are well worth the price. They will last a LONG time and still sound good. I am a professional player and teacher and play a minimum of three hours on most days. I am just now replacing my set after having the old one on for about 10 months -- and none of the strings are false! (They are just getting a little worn and more difficult to tune.) I used to play on Dominants because I wanted to save money, but they cost me more in the long run because I was at the point where I was replacing them every three months. So if you look at it that way the PI strings are about half of what I was paying before!!!
I will say that I took the plunge and tried the platinum E string last time around. I told myself that if it never whistled, it would be worth the extra investment. Well, that didn't happen, and although it did have a nice clear sound, it wasn't appreciably better than the other E string options for my purposes, so I went back to the tin-plated E for this time.
But seriously, strings that last this long? Unheard of! I keep a set of Dominants in my case just in case I was to break one, but I am on my third set lasting 10 months or more and have NEVER broken one. That kind of reliability is well worth it to me! Not to mention, as the review above states, they sound awesome! Highly recommended. :)"
