Timbre for violin. The Timbre string set is the best that Warchal have made so far; utilising all of Warchal's knowledge
and experience. It combines gut-like sound and response with the extra projection and stability that synthetic strings can deliver.
Short break in time for Timbre strings. With a time of only 12 minutes, Timbre strings are quick to stabilise.
There is a futher settling time of around 3 hours to reach full tonal performance. Full details can be found in the leaflet available
from your stockist.
What qualities will Timbre bring to your violin?
The G string offers the greater range of overtones that we admire in old Italian instruments. It gives you both depth and brilliance at the same time. This is why it is suitable for almost every violin.
The D string projects well and responds clearly at every dynamic. Hydronalium is used in the first winding but not in the outer winding. This means that there isn't a problem with corrosion caused by perspiration.
The set is well balanced and there is no drop in projection on the D string.
You can choose from two different A strings. The synthetic A gives improved tone and response. The metal version combines the best qualities of the Warchal metal A string line, namely
the Russian A and Avantgarde. There is a short helix in the bowed area similar that found in Warchal helix E strings.
The E string utilises Warchal's legendary helix invention that makes the tone warmer and prevents whistling. The tension is precisely balanced to provide both playability as well as projection.
Timbre Violin Strings - Where to Buy
The Warchal Timbre set will only be sold through a carefully selected network of luthiers and repairers.
There are several reasons why Warchal decided to sell Timbre only via luthiers:
- 1. Timbre is the best product that Warchal have designed so far. They would like to be sure that it will be installed properly. If you aren't sure about your set-up or how to install strings without damaging them, you can utilise the complimentary installation service.
- 2. Instead of searching for strings online how about spending a few minutes in a violin making workshop. The environment and smell is inspiring. You'll find helpful advice about choosing strings to suit your tonal and playing preferences and your instrument can be checked briefly at the same time.
- 3. Timbre strings delivered to luthiers have never been coiled so you can enjoy them at their optimum quality.
- 4. If your luthier or repairer doesn't stock Warchal Timbre strings then please let them know that ordering from us is simple. Please ask them to contact us and we will be happy to help.
