Well eto ung mga nasubukan ko na mga strings sa violin, hinde ko lang alam kung meron na gumawa dati. sorry na lang he he he.

Well alam ko na iba iba ang response ng strings sa bawat violin, kaya ini specify ko kung ano ang ginamit ko doon.

Alice Strings[100 petot sa Salonga Raon]

Class: Metal core strings

Comments: Cheap and Affordable, matigas sa daliri at madalas mawala sa tune.

Sound Quality: medyo metalic ang sound at hinde gaano responsive sa umpisa 4days to 1 week bago lumambot ang tunog nito. depende kung gaano mo kadalas gamitin. parang ipit ang tunog nito at hinde gaano nag reresonate ang sound. pero puwede na pagtiyagaan sa pag practice.

Violin: China Hofner & Guangji Ang

D'Addario Helicore[2000 petot sa JB]

Class: Metal core strings

Comments: May pagkamahalan, malambot sa daliri, 1-2 days para mag adjust, may sleeves ung A & E strings nito.

Sound Quality: Maganda at buo ang tunog pero medyo matigas at matinis[Metallic] ang tunog pag bagong kabit, mababa & malinaw ang D & G strings nito. Clarity, Good resonance & sustain.

Violin: China Hofner & Guangji Ang

Innig[400 petot kay Cute worm]

Class: Synthetic/perlon core strings

Comments: Very Good price, Ayos gamitin, 1-2 days para mag adjust, kaso nag mamantsa sa fingerboard ung strings, lalo na ung D & G.

Sound Quality: Hinde agad responsive sa umpisa, 3-4 hrs ko ginamit bago ito maging responsive... parang alice strings sa umpisa kaya kaunting tiyaga lang, gaganda kaagad ang tunog nito. IMO medyo nagkukulang lang nga ito sa clarity at lambot ng strings kumpara sa "Helicore" at mas gusto ko pa rin ung baba ng boses ng G string ng Helicore. pero magandang klase talaga ito. oorder pa ako ng marami pag nagka stock si Cute Worm.

Violin: China Hofner & Guangji Ang

Thomastik Dominants[2700 petot 15or25% off JB Music]

Class: Synthetic core strings

Comments: The best strings I tried so far. kaso disappointing talaga ang E-String nito, parang mas maganda pa ung tunog ng Helicore.

Sound Quality: Responsive, playable kaagad nang pagkakabit, wala ako narinig na mettalic sound. the best talaga ung A,D & G strings.

Violin: China Hofner & Guangji Ang

Rotosound [250 lazer yata grnd.flr SM north]

Class: Metal core strings

Comment: IMO metallic ang tunog pang "Rock n' Roll". magaspang ang strings nito, nakutkut pa ung nut ng Hofner ko at natusok pa ung daliri ko sa bandang loop ng ball end[may nakalawit]

Sound Quality: Sobrang harsh at metallic ang tunog nang bagong kabit, 4days to 1 week bago lumambot ang tunog[medyo] talagang matinis at nasasaktan ako sa tunog nito. parang ipit din ang tunog pero mas maganda ang sustain nito kesa sa Alice.

Violin: China Hofner


SO PV! share your experience at wag kalimutan isama kung ano brand ng violin ang ginamit para sa strings :D

Also "let us agree to disagree" share lang natin ung opinion natin at wag ipag pilitan sa iba, ok.

1.) Thomastik Vision (Light Gauge) [2,500 Php JB Music]
Type: Perlon Core

Comment: 3 - 4 days before nag-settle. 7 months life span, at mostly French Baroque Pitch A=392 Hz, Baroque Unequal Temperament

Sound Quality: Mellow. Perfect for light chamber music. Pero nalulunod na ako ng mga nakaDoms pag nakikipag tugtugan sa PV. Natry ko tugtugin mag isa sa Stairs leading to the Hall ng COllege namen ... ang ganda ng Natural Reverb... ♥

Violin : La Sprezzatura



2.) #1 E, Guitar Nylon Strings - yung cheapest ng Lazer (substitute for the A string)

Comment : Some times harsh, and squeaky pero bearable

Violin : kay Sprezzy ulet


3.) Warchal Brilliant E (Gift of a Fellow PV Friend)

Comment : Softer than the Innig E, pero tighter than the Thomastik Vision E. Balak namen talaga ni Lowell yung Warchal Ametyst kaso Out of Stock sa Sound Essentials SM North ... kaya yun, pansamantala naka Brilliant muna. ^_^

Sound quality : Brilliant than the Vision E, but less brilliant than the Innig.

Violin : Sprezzy


4.) Innig E (donnated by Cute Worm)

Comment: Bright, pero matigas sa kamay. Since i'm not using chin rest and shoulder rest on my violin, nakakangawit and after less than 1 hour of playing, pagod at ngawit na yung Pinky Finger ko since i have to hold my violin with my left hand.

Sound quality : Bright

Violin : Sprezzy

Usually ung mga mahal na strings magaganda ang E nila. pero mamili ka rin, mag try ka lang ng iba't ibang brand at meron ka makikita kung saan mas gaganda at nagigiging responsive ang violin mo.

Sa ngayon Helicore E ang gusto ko ginagamit sa violin, hinde ko type ung Doms E napapag iwanan ito ng kasamang strings[A,D&G]

OO naman pupuwede iyun, pero kadalasan Pirastro E-string ang kino combo sa Doms[A,D&G]... kaso mahal. at gusto ko rin masubukan, sa ngayon Helicore ang ginagamit ko :D

Also, depende rin iyan sa violin mo. kaya magsubok lang ng magsubok ng iba't ibang brand, at bigyan pansin ang tunog tuwing nag papalit, para malaman mo kung anong brand ang bagay para sa violin mo.

Mahal ung Pirastro"Evah pirrazi" kung dito bibilhin, mga 600petot ung nanalo nang nag pa auction si Jurusu.[E-string lang ito]

Magtanong ka kay sir Rommel kung may stock, alam ko nagtitinda siya ng Pirastro"Tonica" mga 2.5k yata per set. kung gusto mo sumubok ng pirastro.

Madalas puro mga Chinese steel strings na available sa mga tindahan sa Quiapo ang gamit ko. Prices range from 100-200. I change every two months. pag may nakita akong bagong brand susubukan ko, hoping na medyo maganda siya. Pero ganoon pa rin ang kalidad niya. Matinis, matigas sa kamay.

And I recently tried Rotosound grabe, at the price of 250 petot (nakakahawa itong petot na to, LOL) hindi worth it. Grabeng dissatisfied ako. Tinanggal ko na siya at bumalik na ako sa usual Chinese steel strings. Right now ang gamit ko ay DADI strings, 100 PhP sa Raon shopping arcade ko nabili ito.

I used these for my Parrot and Chinese Hofner. Awa ng Diyos hindi ko pa nadidisgrasya yung default string ng aking Bachendorff, pero most likely magi-invest ako sa mas mamahaling strings para sa kanya.

Hello,

Nag downgrade ako ng strings lately dahil naputol na yung Dominant sa violin ko. Grrr...

So now I used Chinese strings. I noticed that the string is prone to buzz when the metal wound is just like that of the guitar. I prefer yung smooth wound kasi less yung buzzing.

I agree, napansin ko nga rin na prone ssa buzzing ang china made strings...... ndi ko lng sure kung may lunas para duon..... i tried putting a little piece of paper sa nut ng string na nagbubuzz.... medyo nabawasan naman ung buzzing nya..... (dun nga pala un sa violin na pinahiram saken...) but di ko sure kung effective un sa iba....


back to topic, i have experienced playing doms sa violin ng friend ko, maganda nga tunog nya, pero ndi ko pa deserve gumamit ng mamahaling strings, china made strings muna pampraktis.... Strings you've tried 112191

Ang expensive ng luho natin.
