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.
Really well-balanced across the strings, A-string doesn't stick out like a sore thumb (has a nice, clear, resonant quality), and the C-string is comparable to a Spirocore tungsten. The whole set improved my cello's tone, enhancing its already resonant sound with added warmth and projection. Notes in the fourth/fifth/sixth position have improved in terms of quality, intonation, and projection. With my old strings (Jargar Originals), the region didn't speak as much and required more effort to pull out the sound. Overall, these strings are definitely worth a try.
