Pirastro Tonica Violin Strings



A New Formula for a trusted favorite string

► Nylon core strings

* Lively and round sound

* Easy tone attack

* Very easy response


* Tonica strings have a core made from nylon.

* They produce a lively well-rounded sound, perfectly balanced across all four strings.

* Responding instantly to any bowing style, they reward both player and listener with an open and direct sound.

* With substantially reduced background ‘hiss’, players can sustain a more even tone helping to achieve smoother string crossings.

* With a highly responsive left hand feel, Tonica strings remain very easy to play all the way up to the highest positions. * Projection and brilliance have been upgraded.

* However, this excess does not mean that the Tonica has lost its warmth.

* Playing pianissimo has considerably improved.

* All bow strokes are possible resulting in smooth crossings from one note to another.

* Easy right hand articulation and tone attack.

* Due to their medium string tension Tonica strings are suitable for all instruments.

* Insensitive to variations in temperature and humidity


* 4/4 in soft, medium and strong

* straight strings only in medium


* 4/4

* 3/4 – 1/2

* 1/4 – 1/8

* 1/16 – 1/32
