My "A" string

Monday, May 21, 2012

I looked this up as well.  My new fiddle had a bad A sring at C# it.  I was unable to find out what strings they were from the various color charts.  I got a set of Dadirrio Prelude at the local toy store and put on the new A. 

I was concerned about balance so I put on the entire set; besides I had never changed violin strings and the first person I talked to acted like it was rocket sicence so the gauntlet had been thrown.  This turned out to be a non issue since my travails with the five-string short string usually ended in bloodshed (mine).  Fiddle strings were a non issue after that. 

Now I confess to being a little compulsive and might have played all weekend; Lets say ten or fifteen hours.

Bingo! new compromised A string right at the same place.  C# must be a living hell for little string bugs.  Am I made of battery acid?

Maybe some string that's clad with bronze?  Maybe Kryptonite?  Some other brand which won't delamanate during the 90th A part of "Soldier's Joy"  (Maybe not...Most of the folks at the office have come delamanated some time during the thirty-third A part of 'Slodier's Joy"!)  Im open to suggestions.  I guess I could start looking for a source of A strings and order a stack of them.

Banjo strings either don't wear out or you never can tell.  What news?
