About This Item

These are our best-selling strings! We introduced these strings in the Fall of 2006 - and they have since outsold every other student steel string we carry - combined!

Taking over three years to develop, the secret of Overture strings is in combining high quality precision German alloys, low cost, yet accurate, Chinese manufacturing, and SHAR's commitment to excellence. Our dedicated product development staff, all players themselves, went through countless prototypes from numerous established string manufacturers until they sounded, felt and played just right! And we didn't stop there - we inspect each new batch of strings to ensure that our high quality standards are constantly maintained.

We also went through extensive play testing during the development process, comparing Overture strings not just to student steel strings, but to much more expensive synthetic core strings. Our play testers, all professional players themselves, had this to say:
"Overture Violin Strings sound very good on every instrument tested (from Hoffmann Prelude up through the Collectors Series Emiliani Strad), these strings definitely play better than all other Chinese strings tested. They also play better than other popular students brands. Given allowances for differences in core construction, we even found that they hold their own against many expensive synthetic core strings. They are full, loud, well-balanced with good sound and are easy to play."

The SHAR Apprentices feel that Overture strings are smooth, with a more direct texture, producing a tone that is clear, focused and relatively more brilliant and direct. We back up our claims with an unparalleled guarantee - if you do not like the Overture strings, for any reason whatsoever, simply return them within 30 days, and we will give you a complete refund. What other string brand guarantees that you will be pleased with their sound? Players like you have tried these and found that our years of effort have paid off? Find out for yourself today!

Asked On: 03/02/2017

How does the sound of this string compare to Dominants?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Tara. Being that these are a steel string, compared to the Dominants which are synthetic, you will notice that the Overture Premium strings are brighter and will have a very fast response. Dominants will be warmer and will be a little easier to tune with the pegs. (We recommend fine tuners for steel strings). If you click here you will see on our sound chart that both the Dominant and Overture Premium strings are similarly mid-range when it comes to the direct/subtle scale.

Asked On: 08/02/2016

Oh, no! I broke a string! What should I do? Will this damage my instrument?

SHAR Answer:

No worries, it’s okay! This definitely happens now and then and it’s nothing to be too worried about. Unless all four strings broke at the same time (highly unlikely) and the bridge completely collapsed, it’s unlikely that there is any damage at all to your instrument. If it’s just simply one string that broke, then you’ll just need to purchase a new one and install it.

Unfortunately, broken strings cannot be repaired. They need to be replaced if they are broken. You can usually find them at a local violin shop. You can buy an individual string (only the A string, for example), if that's the one that's broken, or we also sell strings in a set of all four strings (E, A, D & G for violin and A,D,G & C for viola and cello). We sell a wide variety of brands of strings here at Shar--you can order them here online or over the phone. Our customer care representatives can help you place an order for new strings at 800.248.7427.

It's fairly uncommon for strings to just randomly snap. This is more likely to happen if the strings are older, worn out, or not in good condition. That’s why it’s a good idea to replace your strings periodically (their longevity will depend on how much you play) and keep your strings/instrument in proper condition. It’s also a good idea to purchase and keep an extra set of strings handy in your case, just in case a string breaks right before a lesson or performance and you need to replace it.

Are these ball ends?

SHAR Answer:

Yes. They have little metal rings called balls on one end. This is the end that goes inside of the tailpiece. For instructions on how to change a string, check out this video.
