Infeld Red Violin G String vg-11$25.95

The infeld red has a darker, warmer tone and the infeld blue is more brilliant in sound. they are designed so that you can mix and match them on your violin to get the balance you need. the tension is the same for either set. the blue set has a brilliant sound like the dominant but with more character. they break-in quicker and don't have a metallic edginess when new. the infeld reds are warmer and darker in tone but not dramatically so. the difference is subtler than the difference between pirastro's obligato and evah pirazzi. the infeld violin system affords the player a list of advantages: relatively insensitive to excess humidity, strings settle in quickly, stabilising early on in the string's life for concert use, low overall tension on the instrument produces an open, transparent sound, very responsive to different playing techniques, lending itself to various interpretative approaches, large and full sound, making the string sets suitable for soloists and chamber music players, good purity of open fifths, even when strings are older, excellent response in all positions.
