Pirastro Oliv Stiff Violin String D Gold/Aluminium 16 3/4 Straight
The sheep gut core of the Oliv strings is manufactured, wound and polished in the traditional way, by hand. The sound is brilliant. Oliv strings offer the typical beautiful sound of gut strings. The tone is rich and complex. Altering the gauge by 1/4 PM changes the tension by 3%. The silver D-string is richer in overtones and has easier response than the gold-aluminum which is included in the set.
The medium set contains the following strings:
- E-goldsteel medium
- A-aluminum 13 1/2
- D-gold-aluminum 16 3/4
- G-gold-silver 15 3/4.
Variations: D-silver is available in four gauges. Version "Stiff": D- and G-strings have a darker and more powerful sound.
