Infeld Thomastik Guitar Strings and Mandolin Strings
For more than a century, stringed instrument players have trusted Thomastik-Infeld for their strings. The history of Thomastik-Infeld dates to 1919. It was then that violin maker Dr. Franz Thomastik and civil engineer Otto Infeld, both of Vienna, co-founded the company and introduced the steel instrument string, which offered greater tonal quality and reliability than the traditional gut string.
Over 90 years later, their continuing research and expert technicians keep the company on the leading edge of string innovation. Strings and Beyond has all the latest and most popular Thomastik strings that are used by everyone from heavy metal artists to George Benson to the American String Quartet.
High-Performance Guitar and Orchestral Strings
We offer several lines of professional-quality Thomastik-Infeld strings. Our selection of guitar strings includes acoustic strings, electric strings, jazz guitar strings and classical guitar strings. The progressive design gives these strings an unmatched tonal richness whether you’re playing on the Radio City Musical Hall stage or busking the streets of Nashville. For orchestra players, we also have their violin strings, upright double bass strings, mandolin strings and mandola strings.
The Thomastik-Infeld Spectrum series features plain silver steel treble strings and polished bronze windings on the others. These strings have a balanced tone and are especially recommended for recording sessions where clarity is of utmost importance. Their Plectrum strings are softer sounding, low-tension acoustic guitar strings. Brass-coated steel is used for the plain strings with steel and silk used for the wound strings. Their Jazz Bass line has nickel flat wound round core strings and their Powerbass strings are round wound.
