Using new combinations of materials, innovative designs, construction and gauging this has become the favoured string line among the top orchestral string players. Using more expensive, higher tensile strength core material for greater flexibility and sustain, even building new machines to allow for an unusual winding design that achieves tonal balance.
The red set will produce a rather dark sound on the majority of violins. Tonal balance, playing characteristics at any given position and string response are excellent throughout. This is possible due to homogenous string tension at various pitches and design parameters which balance the overall behaviour of the set irrespective of the combination of strings. Using the INFELD VIOLIN system, both the violinist and the violin maker will find that the instrument can be optimized in a very short time.
* suitable for old and new instruments. * 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. * the set emphasises the innate tonal characteristics of each violin, making instrument adjustment easier.
