Kaplan Viola Strings
Last week, the sales team got a first-hand look at the new Kaplan Viola sets. We're all excited to now offer one of one of the most sought-after, balanced Viola sets on the market and thought we'd tell you all about it.
Offering a beautiful, rich tonal palette and superb bowing response characteristics - the Kaplan viola set is aimed at the most discerning professional musicians. These sets provide clarity and warmth across registers, and versatility throughout the dynamic spectrum, allowing top-level players the control, expression, and worry-free playing experience they demand.
Building on the success of the Kaplan Viola A strings, the Kaplan viola set adds a new and complimentary D, G, and C-string component. Kaplan Viola set and singles are available in medium and heavy tensions, long scale. A light tension A-string is available as a single string only.
Sales Tip: As per D'Addario's Orchestral Product Specialist, Liz Benoit Crew, the most commonly asked question she's received at educator shows is "how is this different from Helicore?" Liz's answer - "the Kaplan viola set provides an extremely easy bow response, known to those already familiar with the Helicore viola set. Additionally, Kaplan Viola offers both greater projection and a wider tonal palette of sound, giving discerning musicians a broader range of expression.
- Developed in partnership with professional violists around the world.
- Viola, being a bigger instrument than violin, makes it inherently more difficult to get around. Kaplans have a very quick bow response, which provides additional ease of playing. Less energy spent on bowing = more energy put toward musical expression.
- Combines the perfect amount of warmth and richness with clarity and focus.
Tone is balanced and matched across the set. No struggling with strings that sound drastically different, or mixing/matching different string sets. Balanced and matched tone gives you better intonation and a more worry-free playing experience.
