A perfect step-up viola string set for the advancing player, Super-Sensitive’s Octava viola strings feature a high quality multi-filament, nylon material, called Perlon. The synthetic core allows for the dynamic tones found in more professional strings, but the strings still offer easy bowing response and tonal durability associated with steel core strings. Although Octava viola strings are value priced, the strings provide a brilliant yet warm tone desired most violists. Octava viola strings are specifically designed for two fractional sizes and full-sized violas. From mini (12”) to medium (15-16-1/2”) sizes, the Octava viola strings feature aluminum winding on the A and D strings and nickel winding on the G and C strings. For the medium size (15-16 1/2”), the C string features a silver winding. Budget friendly viola strings with a remarkably warm tone, Super-Sensitive’s Octava viola strings are ideal for introducing new tonal dynamics to a learning student.
