The original Heifetz E String! A best-seller for ages, this plain steel violin E is string favored by professionals for its brilliant, rich sound & projection. The manufacturer offers more gauges than any other E (26-medium & 27-thick are most popular); made in Germany by Optima, formerly known as Lenzner Goldbrokat.
Plain steel Violin E
Don't waste your money...on other expensive E strings! Goldbrokat's standard 26 E may be under two bucks, but it's one of the best sounding and long-lasting E strings on the market. Having tried many other options, including the fancy gold, platinum, whatever that is out there, I keep coming back to this one. I always have extras in my case pocket to give to colleagues and students when they are stuck without one at a gig, rehearsal, or concert.
I just put these strings on my violin and expected it to constantly go out of tune. I just tuned it once, and it is amazingly level. Ahh, the wonders of steel strings. They are dirt cheap, but one of the best E strings out there. I currently have them on with my Dominants, because the old E string was horrible. Amazing.
Concord sent my purchase expeditiously. Also, the Goldbrokat E has been great. Very clear sound.
The Lenzner Goldbrokats are my favorite E string and I buy them 6 at a time becuase they are so cheap. I first tried them with Dominants because I did not like the one that came with the set and the sound of the Goldbrokat is much clearer and bright without a metallic sound. Now I use them with the Evah Pirazzi's and it blends really well.
