Description

Some instruments don’t work well with synthetic or gut core A strings. They may sound gritty and there can be a problem with response especially in the higher positions.

This is why many violinists, particularly Russian ones, prefer metal A strings. We designed the Russian Style A for these players a few years ago.

We’re now introducing a string that merges the Russian style formula with our unique helical design. The helix significantly improves the longitudinal elasticity of the metal solid wire core. As a result, the Avantgarde A has more warmth and depth of tone. It keeps its high quality sound even under full attack and has a remarkably fast response.

The wavy design continues along the whole length of the string, so for some players the feeling under the finger may require a few minutes to get used to.

    Absolutely love & appreciate this string! Wonderful fresh, clear & warm sound especially from 3rd position and up where other strings usually collapses in sound & even intonation, this string is clear & beautiful. I agree that the response is fast and clear cut. Thank you Svend for introducing me to this string. I am thankful for this delighted treat.
