The ArcRest Thick Set includes the two thickest standard pads, 9/16″ and 11/16″ Fits 3/4-4/4 violins & most violas under 16in
The design of the ArcRest was inspired by great players of the 20th century who balanced the violin on three points: the collarbone, the jaw, and the hand. Unlike other shoulder rests, the ArcRest does not disturb the natural relationship between the instrument and the player. The violin is not elevated, but sits in its natural position on the collarbone, supported by the ArcRest.

Liberating and accentuating the A and D in your overall sound while providing an easy response and effortless playing in the lower register.
I have a Stainer copy, and I used to use other brand's strings. First time I had contact with PI I could not back to them, it was really striking, impacting. The durability is good, but I prefer other brands for E string.
Very fast delivery, just 5 BD (São Paulo, BR)
This is my "go to" A string for two of my violins. It maintains a nice full round sound but is also easier to play than the synthetics I used to use. It creates the perfect balance between my D and E strings. I really like it.
I like the Pirastro Gold upper strings for Baroque cello when not using open gut for one reason or another. They retain that gut sound and aren't too
overly refined. They hold pitch excellently and are a bit easier to get around the instrument on when one is moving quickly. It's a really good compromise. I just played the Goldberg Variations transcription on them where one really needs to get up and down the cello quickly, so a good compromise is called for in that, at least for me. Not that I like the transcription, by the way. It's sort of a travesty. But we don't always play only what we want....Ron Thomas
This is a decent bridge for the price. Obviously being an adjustable bridge, it is not such high quality as a properly-fit blank would be. It is certainly thicker at the base than what I am used to. As a replacement bridge on a cheap violin, though, it works fine.
I have always used this string and, despite new varieties on the market, I feel most comfortable with the reliability of this string quality. Concord has been exceptional in their service. I highly recommend them to my friends, students and colleagues.
Llegaron super rapido, muchas gracias!
Very textured and powerful string, with exceptional range of dynamics and color. Very flexible and responsive under the fingers. I highly recommend this string over Larsen as it lasts much longer (I have had two previous Kaplan A's lasting more than two years each with no degradation in tone, texture and color.)
I have three cellos with vastly different characteristics and this string works well with each one.
As always your service is quick and courteous. The strings are excellent.
I have been ordering from Concord since the eighty's. In those days, it was Mrs. Marx with whom I would talk to on the phone, and once met when she attended a Cleveland Orchestra concert in NY. Since then, her daughter Julia took over the business and I felt a continuation of that friendliness and most importantly, knowledge. She listens to what customers are saying, so when I told her I'm not happy with one of E strings, she recommended this string. Sure enough, I just played my first concerts on it in Mexico, and it's the best E string I've had. I'm very pleased.
Great product! Arrived sooner than expected. Very well wrapped and carefully placed amongst other items. I totally recommend this one product and concord musical supplies.
I have had lots of trouble with wolf eliminators falling off or not really working. This one is working and staying in place... what can I say?
Very similar to Passione but with additional warmth and depth. They take a while to settle and need frequent tuning in warm humid conditions but are worth the effort.
I'm an amateur cellist and play in a community orchestra. I have had a set of Evah Pirazzi Gold strings on my cello for about a year. My cello is a Schroetter German factory made cello c. 1964. My A string sounded like it needed changing. After researching a number of sites I found several recommendations for Warchal strings They were about 1/2 the price of the Evah Pirazzi Golds so I decided to buy a set and give them a try. So far I have only put on the A string. It is excellent and blends well with the other Pirazzi Golds. It took about 2 weeks for the string to completely play in. Initially the string was a bit muted but now it is fine. I play about an hour a day on average, more on weekends. I had to tune it every day at first as it stretched (synthetic core). Now I can tune it with the fine tuner as necessary. I haven't tried the other 3 strings yet but expect they will be great.
I've been looking for a violin strings set that my daughter (who is so picky about everything) would not complain. Finally I found the set she has been satisfied with! Thank you so much!
I have used Evah Pirazzi violin string sets for years, I cannot change to any other. The sound is soooo much better than other strings. I highly recommend these strings.
It's a great and simple metronome, using probably since 2007 at least. Highly recommended!
I feel the power with Spirocore Viola Tungsten C string.
Snug fit. Attractive piece of hardware. Does the job, heavily mutes the sound.
A beautiful case! It was time to get a lighter case, and after much research, I settled on this one. It's so good to have a comfortable backpack case. I've had a Pedi viola case from Concord Strings for many years. Good cases!
Evah Gold strings bring out the full tonal color palette of my fine Italian violin. Evah Pirazzi Gold is in a galaxy which is light years past all other strings. Comparing Evahs to other strings is like comparing the complex bouquet of Graham's port to Taylor port.
Larsen med. tungsten. G String is a fabulous string. Flexible, responsive, and bold. Blends well with Jargar forte d and other similar strings as well as other Larsen strings
This rest is the most comfortable I have tried. It makes playing easier, and also is
beautiful in appearance.
Strings are alright except e string broke the first day my daughter played.
I put the new strings on the viola and was never so thrilled with new strings. The sound is full and round. I feel like practicing more because it sounds so beautiful under my ear. They have given me confidence in my playing. I would recommend these strings whole heartedly. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!
Below is my dog Beyonce'.
I've never heard such a powerful and clear tone from a C string before. Amazing.
This is the second set of Ambers I've tried and the first time with metal A. The last set lasted for about 4 months for me with almost daily playing. I like the sound, big, warm, and a little breathy. Takes about a week of playing to break in. My only complaint is they ring too long. Both the metal A and synthetic A were well matched. The metal A is little more piercing and responsive. Take a little more pressure for string crossings compared to all metal Daddario Kaplans I was using before (those are very easy to play).
I have been using the Warchal Amber strings for a week and have found them very rich in tone and easy to play, very similar to Peter Infeld PI. They took a few days to fully settle. The Warchal Amber E has been my standard E for a few years. Other players have been giving high compliments to the sound from my F. Ruggeri.
I find the EP slap set inferior to other Pirastro products, and the description paragraph misleading...the original EP sets give much better tonal quality both pizza and arco...the gut strings warble and offer no stable resonation, and the E and A are minimal at best...for me a lesson learned and wasted $279.00...
This is the best E string out there. My teacher is the one who invented it... he told the company what materials to use so that it never whistles, and doesn't go false (except eventually, when all strings must be replaced). And it delivers. The tone quality is excellent and it is easy to play on. A very consistent string. None of the many Es I have tried is as reliable as this. I use Peter Infeld for my other 3 strings paired with this E.
I've had these strings on my older (130 yr old) 16 inch viola for about 10 days, and I'm very happy with them. Clear and quick response (compare to the Obbligato set I had been using). The sound is still warm, but with more center and "zing". Good projection for a smaller instrument. I will be very interested to see how they sound in about 6 weeks ( the usual life span for Obbligatos). The price for this set is very competitive.
An excellent string...an alternative to the Larsens. D strings are problematic on may cellos, and I have spent a lot of $ on D strings that I did not like and took off right away.
It is warm yet powerful and the dolce is very responsive. I use the superior d with the classic a, medium or forte. which I still prefer over the superior A
I've used D'Addario Helicore Hybrids on my string bass going on 20 years, and have found them to serve as excellent all-purpose strings. Over the years, I played semi-professionally in several different string orchestras, concert bands, big bands, and pit orchestras, and have come to rely on these strings for their quality and value.
It took too long to receive them.
Better the Pirastro Tonica, In my violin.
I haven't tried Dominant strings in quite a while. I have been using Peter Infeld strings on my Panormo Violin, which strings sometimes seem a little heavy. So in an effort to lighten tension and make the instrument speak more easily, I decided to try the Dominants. Not very happy with the results in my case. One dimensional sound which does speak quickly and easily, but the lack of different colors and quality of sound is so obvious it sends me gratefully back to Peter Infeld violin strings.
I love the Vision solo strings but have yet to find the perfect "c" string for my instrument. I might blend the D andG with a PI c string.
Great mute, very fast shipping!
