A New Formula for a trusted favorite string!

  • nylon core strings
  • lively and round sound
  • easy tone attack
  • very easy response


Features :

  • 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.
  • Whilst giving positive feed back to your left hand, Tonica strings remain very easy to play right up into 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.
