Pirastro Chorda Viola Strings
The Pirastro Chorda viola strings are authentic strings made for Baroque instruments. This set has a very low string tension. In the standard set, the A and D strings are plain gut strings, while the G and C strings are wound. These strings are designed for 440 Hz tuning. For 415 Hz tuning, try the strong gauge. Altering the gauge by 1/4 PM changes the tension by 3%.
The tailpiece end of the A and D come without a knot, and the G and C come with a knot already tied.
Standard set contains:
A- gut (14 1/2g)
D- gut (19 1/2g)
G- silver-plated copper wire over gut (16 1/2g)
C- silver-plated copper wire over gut (22 1/2g)
For best results Pirastro Eudoxa rosin is recommended.
