The production of Jargar viola strings is based on a special, flexible steel core, like the violin strings. All viola strings - A, D, G and C - are wound with thin threads of metal - aluminum, copper and different alloys. The strings produce a big, powerful, distinct and well-balanced tone.
All viola strings are made in 3 tensions:
red color in the ball end and blue color in the peg end
blue color in both ends
green color in both ends
However, viola D is always brown in the peg end.
The diameters of the medium strings are approx.:
- A - 0.44 mm
- D - 0.73 mm
- G - 0.79 mm
- C - 1.08 mm
The forte strings are a little thicker and the dolce strings a little thinner than the medium strings.
Jargar viola strings are only produced for full size instruments.
