Magnacore® Arioso is now available as a full set!
A and D strings have been developed to suit the needs of professional musicians in search of a pure and ‘singing sound’. Produced in medium tension, these strings combine brilliance and projection with a wide range of sound colors. The Magnacore® Arioso G and C deliver a lower tension without compromising sound volume. Liberating and accentuating the A and D in your overall sound while providing an easy response and effortless playing in the lower register.
The ArcRest Medium Set includes the middle two standard pad thicknesses, 7/16″ and 9/16″. 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.
First time i am trying them on ans i love them
I bought the regular Evah Pirazzi strings last year for my new viola hoping it would broaden my tone and sound. (It did). When I was in need for a new set I knew I could count on the Pirazzi series so I took the risk of buying the gold set. The C,G, and D strings have a more softer sound than the regular Pirazzi's but it did not prevent my viola from singing. While the normal Pirazzi's focus more on the bolder sound, the gold series focuses on soft, tender yet projectable sound. It makes me tear up every time I play with this set as it never fails to sing each note as I play. The Larsen A is a perfect combination with the Gold series as it doesn't whine as it gets higher. Rather, the A balances itself with the tender tone of the gold strings. The Larsen A can also reach very high ranges without losing its clarity! In addition to the great sound, the strings also have a great settling period as it only took the strings a day to settle! Yet another great product made by Pirastro! Highly recommend!!!!
I have used Vision for many years, first on an Ernst Heinrich Roth (Guarneri model) back in college, and now my current instrument by Ran Dim (Chicago, USA). While many newfangled strings have come on the market, any player looking for a long-lasting, consistent, and pitch-stable string with plenty of power should not overlook the regular Vision set from Thomastik. Despite it's lower cost, it offers many of the characteristics sought by those spending $80, $90, and more on string sets, and it doesn't have some of the rapid falloff in response or "crunchy" tone that occurs with some of today's premium sets.
I play on a modern instrument and I am already using a second set of Kaplan Amo Strings. I like them very much. I've tried Kaplan Vivo but found them too harsh and slow to respond. Before switching to d'Addario I used Obligato strings and I prefer Amo to Obligato primarily for the longevity of the former. I'd recommend these strings for their quick break in time, even sound through the registers and because they last somewhat longer than others I've had in the past.
Excellent balance of warmth and brilliance, sounds clear, response is very good, it is powerful and has great projection. Considering the international shipping it was pretty fast the delivering time. Matched very well my Spirocores. I narrowed down my string choices and online suppliers to the Jargar Special Forte A and Concord, i'm very happy with both.
great string E string, always speaks
The Eva Golds are resonant, powerful, and meaty. I think they are a big improvement over regular Eva's on my viola.
I did not know the string and I confess that I was afraid of acquiring them and did not correspond to the investment, but at the first pass of the bow the sound came out brilliantly.
I've been using Oliv strings for eight years and I love them! The C string in particular, has wonderful resonance and strong warm qualities. If you haven't played it before you have to get used to it as it is a thick string. If you and your cello like it, stay with it. Personally, I can never go back to steel again. I love gut strings!
Wanted to like this string as I have been a hesitant fan of the original Evah Pirazzi's (loud and tense but without a lot of warmth or color) and also like PI's but they're very expensive. Hoped this would be a good balance between the two but have never struggled so much with a G string before. Had a lot of difficulty playing parts of Wieniawski Polonaise in D and Zigeunerweisen that resolved upon changing strings. May be a good string for some but definitely not all.
Was skeptical at first of the "anti-whistle" technology and what sacrifices had to be made to achieve it, but I love this string (previously using the Evah Pirazzi Gold E string). Balances well with my Vision Titanium/Solo setup, makes double-stops easy, sings beautifully and has a brilliance and resonance I wasn't experiencing beforehand with the EPG E, although I'm not sure if that's due to the string going false or the string itself.
Great if you like Peter Infeld strings, which I had been experimenting with but trying to find a cheaper alternative to. Powerful and focused, though I am still trying to get used to them. A touch metallic/brash/harsh
Produces a sweet sound but I feel it's nothing special at that price
It's brighter and louder than the Eudoxa, though I'm not sure if the quality is any better than the Eudoxa. If you're doing pre-20th century music as a period music musician, you might want to use a pure gut. Or if you want to play most of the rep, try this or Eudoxa.
The set has been on for two weeks as of this review. They perform as advertised! A full, round (strong yet neutral IMHO) sound. Easy to play! Great dynamic contrast. Nice tension and feel under the fingers. No balance issues for me. Plenty of string length for my 16.5 inch viola fitted with a short (110mm) tailpiece. The strings did stretch quite a lot for the first two days, but have been rock solid since. Silkings are blue at the tailpiece, yellow up in the peg box. Swedish colors on Danish strings? Regardless, bravo Jargar! Will definitely get these again.
This backpack system is the best I have found. I carry my instrument all over New York City through train stations and crowded streets, and the Musilia case and backpack system alleviate shoulder tensions from carrying the case everywhere. There is also a pocket that fits oversized scores and a handy chair cushion. I also love the small pocket to hold rosin, rockstop, mute, etc. so that I don't need to put any accessories inside the case with the cello. If you don't have a Musilia case, it's worth buying one to use this system. The folks at Concord Music were extremely helpful and found a way to get it to me in two days.
I love my new luxitune string adjuster. The clear Swarovski crystal gives just the right amount of bling.
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!
