Hand-wound in Copenhagen since 1956 and sized to fit full scale instruments, Jarger’s Green viola strings are the lowest tension viola string set produced by Jargar. The Green viola strings, also known as the Dolce set, offers a wide spectrum of tone, and the low tension allows for more tonal manipulation than the other tensions. Although the low tension provides less projection than the high tension strings, the Green viola strings offer increased bowing response. These low tension viola strings feature a flexible steel core for increased resonance and a well-balanced tone. The winding includes a combination of aluminum, copper and metal alloys, producing a brilliantly warm and crystalline tone, while the low tension provides a wide tonal palette. More sensitive and providing richer overtones than the standard strings, pure silver windings are also available for the G and C viola strings.
