Corelli Cantiga Violin E String
A new intense, rich, focussed and clean sound with a large harmonic spectrum
A very lively and responsive string allowing the finest nuances (secure, free and easy playing).
A very easy response in all positions. Newly designed machines, the specific construction and material of CANTIGA strings contribute to their great longevity with perfect stability of their tonal characteristics (tuning, harmonics...).
Corelli Cantiga set is available in 3 tensions.
The innovation consists in the discovery of a very new polymer treated in a way that produces outstanding never known sounding characteristics.
With a specific combination of metals it puts the strings at the higher level of strings’ quality.
Consequently they are dedicated to professionals and soloits and are used to play the solo part of violin concertos or the best pieces of chamber music, musicians can play in great confidence and feel secure.
The string settles-in very quickly; immediately making a difference while the first notes are played, and improving again in few hours.
Perfect balance between the four strings (tone and projection).
All the musicians who participated in our tests, decided to keep the full set.
Very important: Cantiga strings fit modern and antique instruments perfectly.

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.
What is gauge / tension?
Gauge refers to the thickness, or diameter, of the string. The greater the string’s diameter, the heavier it is, affecting tone and response to finger pressure and bowing. Tension is the horizontal force on a string between the nut and the tailpiece. Tension is also affected by the types of metals a string is wound with.
Medium tensions are the most popular choice. These strings are designed to bring a balanced response and tone.
Light or weak strings are thinner, so less tension is required to bring them to pitch. If your violin has a naturally heavy or dark sound quality, you might use light gauge strings to brighten the tone.
Heavy or strong strings require greater tension and they are less responsive but can create a more nuanced tone.
