D'Addario has produced strings in America since 1905 and is the largest string manufacturer in the world. The use of high-tech machinery like their Tension Control System guarantees consistency of each of the hundreds of thousands of strings produced daily. D'Addario uses recycled and recyclable materials in the packaging, and soy based ink in much of their product line. We carry the complete line of bowed strings from D'Addario.


Helicore Steel rope core string. Helicores are crafted with a multi-strand twisted steel core. These strings have a very small diameter to provide extremely quick bow response. They sound subtle under the ear, yet offer great projection in large concert halls. Helicores stay in tune especially well due to their cores, and retain a long playing life. Made in all sizes.


Prelude D'Addario Preludes are solid high-carbon steel core strings with polished pure nickel windings. Introduced in 1983, Preludes have undergone systematic improvements to make them the finest sounding and playing student-grade strings on the market today. This is the string we use most on our student Cello and rental outfit setups. Available in all sizes.

Zyex New Composite core string for professional use. Well suited to all pizz style playing, but still can be bowed due to a decent bow response. A little thicker than typical strings, but maintain little "roll". Long lifespan. Overall these strings offer a great value, because they are produced in the US, and therefore are not effected by exchange rates between currencies.

Kaplan New Steel Rope Core string with strong orchestral response, and good solo pizz tone and response. Competitively priced, compared to some comparable imported brands.
