Offered for sale: Five complete unopened sets of D'Addario Kaplan Vivo Strings, medium tension. These are genuine new string sets in unopened packages, and each string is individually hermetically-sealed in a plastic envelope for freshness. I purchased these sets from a music store liquidation.

D'Addario Kaplan Vivo strings are highly-rated performance-grade strings that provide tremendous volume without any sacrifice in tone. They are terrific for solo bluegrass fiddling with the volume of metal core strings (like Helicores and Prims), but the comfort and richness of synthetic core strings.

These strings list for $168 per set, and "street price" is $83.99 and up. Your cost is only $45 per set!

Here is what said about Kaplan Vivo Strings:

"Vivo is exactly what the name suggests. This might be the liveliest strings I have ever put on my violin (Which at this point is a lot). They are as bright as a metal string but will project over a large orchestra with ease. Even though the E strings looks to be the exact same as the Amo I felt that it had more power and brightness in the Vivo set."


"These strings are cranked to 11. The Vivo set is without a doubt the loudest strings I have ever used. In my private lessons multiple students even took note of how loud my violin suddenly was. Vivo strings seemed to bottom out at what I would consider to be a medium dynamic. If you are already needing more projection than without a doubt these will deliver."

If you're looking for more tone-color than metal core strings without any loss in projection or response, give these a try.

Manufacturer Notes:

"Kaplan violin strings offer professional-level players an unprecedented combination of beauty and power in two options, Kaplan Amo and Kaplan Vivo. Kaplan Amo provides warmth, richness, and flexibility for brighter instruments, while Kaplan Vivo delivers brilliance, clarity, and a robust feel for darker instruments. Both sets settle quickly, exhibiting a rich tonal color palette and superb bow response."
