OLIV (Pirastro)


Oliv strings are low tension, sheep gut core, wound and polished.   Noted for a brilliant, complex sound with big tone.  Altering the gauge by 1/2 PM changes the tension by 4%.  The brand is identified by its olive green thread with white spiral at the tailpiece end.  We usually stock gauge; there may be delays on light and heavy gauge orders.   (These strings are higher tension than Chorda and Eudoxa)
