Oliv Violin Strings

Showing all 19 results

The sheep gut core of the Oliv violin strings is manufactured, wound and polished in the traditional way, by hand. Musicians such as Ilya Gringolts use Oliv strings as they offer the possibility “to explore the remotest corners of sound”. Their sound is brilliant. Oliv violin strings offer the typical beautiful sound of gut strings. Their tone is rich and complex. Altering the gauge of a string by 1/4 PM changes the tension by 3%. The silver D-string is richer in overtones and has an easier response than the gold-aluminium which is included in the set.
