The Essence of Alphayue

The experience of joy in playing is the essence of ALPHAYUE. The advanced synthetic core offers an unparalleled sound quality and a gentle feeling on your fingertips. The strings quickly perk up to their full petential and are instantly responsive.

ALPHAYUE strings improve the sound of even the most basic student instruments, thus the sound of the orchestra as well.

Don't Sweat It

Over 17 years ago Thomastik-Infeld introduced the use of Monel in string development. Monel is a natural alloy, impervious to perspiration and suited for artists with a nickel allergy. Unaffected by temperature and humidity changes, these strings live a long and powerful life. ALPHAYUE G- and C-strings are Monel wound.

Stress Free

With its lower tension, ALPHAYUE strings are more left-hand friendly and don't stress your instrument as much as other strings.

Instruments,
They Love

With brilliant overtones and a full and dark foundation, ALPHAYUE is suitable for the full range of instruments, from dark to bright.
