|The KS411 series (Kaplan Solutions) is a brighter, more projecting A string than the regular Kaplan A. More solistic for those who need added boost on the A|
Kaplan viola strings produce a rich and complex tone. Conceived for the most discerning musicians, they stand up well to extreme bow pressure, allow a diverse tonal palette, and provide a powerful but warm sound.
The Kaplan viola A string produces a full, rich, and warm tone. It is designed to allow greater projection in the higher register of the instrument while balancing and blending well with the lower strings. Titanium winding on high-carbon steel core allows outstanding performance. It stands up well to extreme bow pressure, and provides a strong, soloistic tone quality without being overly bright. Scaled to fit long-scale viola (body length 16-16 1/2 inches) with a playing length of 15 inches (380mm), these heavy tension strings will allow for greater projection and volume potential.
