A wide range of musicians use prim Violin Strings. Long-lasting, with quick response and a bright, powerful sound they are for example used by students at all levels, in Bluegrass, folk music and many other fields. The strings are available in three gauges;
- Soft / Low tension
- Medium tension
- Orchestra / High tension. Orchestra is the highest tension or heaviest gauge of Prim violin strings.
The Medium gauge suits most instruments well, but be sure to experiment; in many instruments, the best sound is obtained by using a combination of different gauges! All strings have a ball end and are sold as individual strings as well as in sets of strings.
Other Violin strings to consider are D’Addario Helicore for a more complex sound and extra volume in some cases depending on the Violin you fit them on. Another Violin string worth trying, with a similar core, would be Thomastik Prazision.
Prim Strings are made in Sweeden.
