Question by:

  • Grand Rapids, MI

Asked On: 05/23/2018

Am I correct that the "Long Scale 15-16.5" refers to the length of the instrument? As in, if I purchased these strings, they would be long enough for my 16" viola? I only ask because the picture says "for 13"-14" violas."

SHAR Answer:

Hello Jamie! The "Long Scale 15-16.5" is referring to the length of the instrument, and these strings will fit your 16 inch viola. We apologize for the conflicting information in the product image. It has been modified to reflect the correct packaging.

Beginner student asks: When purchasing strings, how do I know if i am getting ball end or loop end strings?

SHAR Answer:

You have a choice to purchase either one. It will tell you which one you’re ordering in the description of the string that you’re shopping for. You’ll want to take care to choose the correct one that you want. If you’re a parent and you’re shopping for your beginner or young child, it’s most likely that your child would use a ball-end E string (for violinists), or a ball-end A string (for violists). If you’re not sure which one you should buy, check out this article for more advice.
