Alphayue Viola G String
A high-tech synthetic core married with renowned Thomastik-Infeld quality delivers a rich, sophisticated sound palette impossible to achieve with steel core strings. The strings are wound with monel. Over 17 years ago Thomastik-Infeld introduced the use of Monel in string development. Monel is a natural alloy, impervious to perspiration and suited for artists with a nickel allergy.
With its lower tension, ALPHAYUE Viola strings are more left-hand friendly and don’t stress your instrument as much as other strings.
With brilliant overtones and a full and dark foundation, ALPHAYUE is suitable for the full range of instruments, from dark to bright.
Vibrating String Lengths (Distance from bridge to top nut):
- 4/4 - 37 cm (suitable up to 38.5 cm)
- 3/4 - 35 cm
- 1/2 - 33cm
- 1/4 - 30 cm
- 1/8 - 27 cm

~ RUN BY MUSICIANS, FOR MUSICIANS ~
Stringers has been supplying instruments, bows and accessories to students, parents and professional musicians since 1992. We're proud of our commitment to providing the very best service and offering the best quality, carefully chosen products, for our customers.
All Stringers instruments are set up expertly by our luthiers in our Edinburgh workshop and checked by our playing staff.

What does ball/loop mean?
Some violin E strings and viola A strings come with the option of Loop-end, meaning they are designed for use with hook-type E fittings on tailpieces without a top string fine-tuner. Most student instruments require a ball-end string. Some string manufacturers now product removable ball end strings, and cello strings are all ball-end. Gut strings often have knotted ends.
