Corelli by Savarez

Corelli Crystal Violin Strings

Corelli Crystal violin strings position in the top-of-the-range product thanks to the STABILON multifilament specially elaborated to provide the optimum characteristics of elasticity and elongation necessary for the manufacturing of strings for bowed instruments. Savarez know-how has allowed for the development of a very high quality wound on nylon string that offers a classic sound and does not have the usual nylon sound, a sound which is a bit hard and aggressive. Savarez has managed to give these strings a natural warm and nevertheless rich tone.

NS Electric Strings by D'Addario
D’Addario developed the NS Electric line of strings jointly with Ned Steinberger. Since there is no real limit on volume with electric instruments, the NS Electric line focuses instead on expressive nuance and tone instead of acoustic sound projection. This allows them to bring out the richest possible tone from electric instruments In addition to use with electric instruments, these strings are a perfect match for acoustic instruments when expressive range is deemed more important than sheer volume.
