About This Brand

Handmade Strings Since 1919 from Vienna, Austria

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.


Does It Matter Which Type of String You Put On Your Instrument? Absolutely!

Choosing the correct strings has a huge influence on its tone, ease of playing, and even its well-being: the best and most expensive instrument will only sound average if it is incorrectly strung, while an average instrument can transcend its own limitations with the correct choice of strings. As a matter of fact, switching to better strings is the shortest and easiest way to producing better sound.

From nine decades experience with string research, string development and string production we can safely say that while "the one perfect string for everyone" does not exist, the perfect string for your instrument, playing style and musical repertoire is most likely a Thomastik-Infeld. Up-to-date know-how and long experience enable us to bring out the best in each stringed instrument, revealing and enhancing its tone, color and quality.

Thomastik-Infeld offers a broad choice of products to fit every instrument, musical style, and playing situation. All products are handmade in Vienna to highest manufacturing standards, satisfying the most discriminating musician. 

Welcome to Thomastik-Infeld, please make your choice!
- Peter Infeld, 1942-2009

What is the difference between medium gauge and orchestra gauge? Thank you.

SHAR Answer:

Hi Saul! The Titanium Solo and Titanium Orchestra are both medium gauge but differ in sound qualities. The Solo has powerful and focused tone for solo performers. The Orchestra has a clear and warm tone, intended for orchestra as well as chamber music players. Hope this helps!

Is the E string in this violin string set a loop end?

SHAR Answer:

The E string in the Vision Titanium Solo violin string set is called a removable ball end. This means that you are able to remove the ball and then use the E string as a loop end. Also, it means that you are able to use it as a ball end if you'd like. In general, all of the Vision E strings (including Titanium Orchestra, Vision Solo, Vision, etc) are going to be a removable ball end and all of the Vision Viola A strings are going to be a removable ball end. In the future, if you're ever shopping for strings and you're not sure if the item you're interested in purchasing is a loop or ball end, or what gauge, or you'd like to customize your order in a specific way, I'd advise that you shop using the strings worksheet page here: http://www.sharmusic.com/shop.axd/StringsWorksheet/. On this strings worksheet page, you'll be able to view the winding and check which type of core material, gauge and string end for the string before you buy. For more advice on how to easily shop for strings on our website, including how to make sure you've got the right end (ball or loop) of your E strings and how to remove a removable ball end, view this video here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJelc-kzu9A

  • POPULAR SHAR STAFF QUESTION
  • ANN ARBOR, MI

Asked On: 06/21/2016

When I’m purchasing an E string for violin (or A string for viola), what’s the difference between a ball end and a loop end?

SHAR Answer:

Strings have two ends: one end that gets threaded into the peg (this is the case for every string you buy) and the other end that gets attached to the tailpiece via a fine tuner (also called string adjuster). They form tension/traction between the two ends of the instrument; that’s what makes them have sound when played. This is the case for all stringed instruments.

>>For cellists & bassists, cello and bass strings are always ball end. This question doesn’t apply to them.

For violinists & violists, keep reading!
The lower three strings (A, D, G for violin or D, G, C for viola) will ALWAYS have ball-ends in the synthetic and steel brands, so you won’t need to worry about those. The tailpiece-end of the E string on a violin (or A string on a viola) can come in different options: either a ball end, a loop end or a ‘removable ball’ end. What will determine which string (loop or ball end) you’ll buy? It depends on which type of tailpiece or fine tuners (also called string adjusters) your violin has. You’ll have to take a look and see.

The differences:
A Ball End--it has a ball lodged inside the end of the string, designed to insert into the tailpiece and stay inside there. This is the most common type of E string that a beginner or young child would most likely use.
A Loop End--it has a loop that goes over a prong that is attached to a fine tuner. It’s more common in full size instruments.
A ‘Removable Ball’ End—it comes with a ball end that can be removed/plucked out to reveal a loop-end. Not all ball end strings are removable! Some brands have ‘removable ball’ strings. ‘Removable Ball’ strings will be marked as such, and non-removable ball-end strings will just be listed as ‘Ball’ under End type. When in doubt, or when buying strings as a surprise gift for someone else, you could choose a ‘removable ball’ end and it should work.
