AscentÃ© violin strings have been specifically designed to help players advance their craft with elegance and consistency. AscentÃ© is a synthetic core string set that is designed for any advancing student who is looking for a synthetic string at a price point traditionally associated with steel core strings. Synthetic core strings generally feel easier under the fingers and more giving under the bow, and sound richer than steel cores.
Tone - Provides access to a rich tonal range - Synthetic core strings have more overtones and a richer, fuller tone because the bending stiffness is lower.This allows higher frequencies (higher harmonics) to travel along the string, which isn t nearly as possible with steel strings.
Pitch Stability - Twice (2X!) the tuning stability as major competitors - There is no other synthetic core string on the market that stretches less than AscentÃ©. That means much less time is spent tuning the instrument and more time is spent on meaningful practice -a big win for orchestral directors and teachers. If you re not a daily player, don t worry, your strings will be in tune and right where you left them even a few days or weeks later.
Enhanced Durability “ Dramatically outperforms all competitors in corrosion tests - The G and D strings are wound with Monel, a metal which is much more durable than silver or aluminum (commonly used for other G and D strings). The corrosion resistance is off the charts. They make boat propellers from Monel for a reason. The A string construction is aluminum, but a single wrap is used where competitors use two thin wraps. That means the outer layer of the A string (the string that most violinists wear out first) will last significantly longer than other synthetic core strings.
Resilience “ Performs at the highest level of resilience “ The combination of Monel windings on D and G, and an aluminum wrap on A that is 2x as thick as other synthetic core strings provides resilience beyond all other synthetic brands.
