What has changed? Playability • Faster and easier response. • Playing pianissimo has improved considerably. • All bow strokes are possible resulting in smooth crossings from one note to another. • Easier right hand articulation and tone attack. Sound Characteristic • The Tonica has now a livelier and more round sound, which is open and direct with less side noises. • The projection and brilliance have been upgraded. This excess of brilliance, however, does not mean that the Tonica has lost its warmth. • The set harmony is now much better. New standard set composition The set harmony is now much better by exchanging the steel/aluminum E with the Silvery Steel E 25.5. The D string of the former Tonica set is wound with aluminum, which results in a very warm and soft sound, however at the expense of the set harmony and a certain lack of brilliance. Since the second half of the 1990s it is common for Pirastro standard string sets to have a silver wound D string included. This allows a perfect set harmony with a brilliant sound that has good projection. This is the reason why the standard sets now have the Silvery Steel E and the silver D included.
