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.
It took several years of experimenting with various brands before I finally (!) found the perfect strings for my c. 1900 violin made in Markneukirchen, Germany. These strings have the right balance of brilliance on the E and A strings coupled with the deep resonances needed on the D and G strings to provide the most pleasing sounds for my taste. I wouldn't be without a spare set in my case.
I purchased a set a year ago and while I liked them, I had a problem with the E string. Not long after playing on them the E began to produce a loud harmonic, rather than the true sound. I contacted Thomastik/Infeld and was told that it was “normal”, but I knew it wasn’t right at all. Sure enough, within a couple of days the string broke while I was playing. I was not offered a replacement for was was obviously a flawed product. I will not buy them again - not for that price.
I went from the dominants to these, and I like the Infelds a lot better! They have a very full sound! Definitely recommend!!
Peter Infeld strings sound so sweet and tender
