Add to Basket


  • Tonica strings have a core made from nylon.

  • They produce a lively well-rounded sound, perfectly balanced across all four strings.

  • Responding instantly to any bowing style, they reward both player and listener with an open and direct sound.

  • With substantially reduced background 'hiss', players can sustain a more even tone helping to achieve smoother string crossings.

  • With a highly responsive left hand feel, Tonica strings remain very easy to play all the way up to the highest positions.

  • Projection and brilliance have been upgraded.

  • However, this excess does not mean that the Tonica has lost its warmth.

  • Playing pianissimo has considerably improved.

  • All bow strokes are possible resulting in smooth crossings from one note to another.

  • Easy right hand articulation and tone attack.

  • Due to their medium string tension Tonica strings are suitable for all instruments.

  • Insensitive to variations in temperature and humidity


  • A- and D-aluminum, G-silver, C-tungsten-silver


Tonica strings are available in 4/4 and 3/4-1/2 as well as for:

40cm (15.75") and 43cm (16.93'') vibrating string length.
