Re: string identification

I had a cheap fiddle made in china that I think those were the colors. I sold it to a friend and I think she still has them on it. I’ll have to look at it next time we play together (should be next sunday), If so, I’ll let you know.

Re: string identification

PS. the gold was like a wound thread if I remember, is that how yours is?

Re: string identification

The strings came with the student model of a Stentor… the owner doesn’t know what kind they are.
Thanks to you both for the charts…..will come in very handy!

Re: string identification

Barry….yes the gold is a wound thread. Thanks in advance for finding out. 🙂

Re: string identification

Well, I got a chance this morning to talk to her and those are the colors. But I dont know if this helps because I still dont know the brand, but they did come on a new chinesse violin. If I can find any thing more I’ll let you know.

Re: string identification

Thanks Barry…..the strings seem to have big volume and a nice ringing quality [at least on the Stentor] so I’d like to give them a try.

Re: string identification

I just got a reply from Stentor and the strings are not a particular brand……they are “standard factory-fitted” strings that Stentor puts on those models.
Thanks for your efforts!

Re: string identification

so can you buy sets from them baylady ?

Re: string identification

Barry……no unfortunately you can’t order these strings. Stentor just suggested that I buy mainstream strings that are already on the market. [ex. Dominants]

Re: string identification

just out of curiousity, these are not Stentor© or Astrea strings, right?

Re: string identification

No they are not……the Stentor rep who emailed me, said that these strings are not under a brand name. It would seem that the only way to get them is to buy the fiddle that comes with them. 😉
