One of the first things you'll notice about the string section of a symphony orchestra is its size. A full-sized orchestra typically has between 70 and 100 members and well over half of those chairs are dedicated to musicians who play the orchestral strings. The orchestral string section is made up of the following instruments: violin, viola, cello, double bass and harp. And while they all may belong to the same family, they each bring their own unique voice to the orchestra as a whole. In this catalog you're going to find everything from beginner to professional instruments to all the gear and equipment you need to keep them in top playing condition.
As you browse your choices, you'll see that some instruments are referred to as "outfits". A great option for student musicians, outfits come with everything needed to begin your orchestral string journey. Take for example, the Cremona SV-75 Premier Novice Series Violin Outfit. Not only does this outfit come with a student-level violin that features a super-fun sparkle finish, it also includes a case and bow to match. Are you a novice cellist? Check out the Knilling Perfection I Cello Outfit and the Etude Student Series Cello Outfit; both come ready to play with bows and gig bags.
In addition to instruments, you'll also find replacement parts for orchestral strings. It never hurts to have spare accessories like bridges, pegs and strings in your case or gig bag. The Florea LA8170 Violin Bridge, the String Centre Adjustable Violin Bridge and Glaesel Self-Adjusting Violin Bridges are fantastic choices because they are affordable and offer an exceptional fit for your violin. Or, if the double bass is your instrument of choice, the String Centre Aurolar Hard Maple Bass Bridge or the Glaesel Self-Adjusting Bass Bridge with Wheels may be best for you.
And this selection of orchestral strings goes far beyond the examples mentioned above. Whether you're a student musician in search of their first violin, a cellist looking for a spare set of strings or a harpist who needs a case for their instrument, you're going to find exactly what you want right here.
