One of my students was wondering which brand of strings she is currently using on her violin. She threw out the packages and does not remember the brand name at all. One can tell which brand of strings are on the violin from the colored wraps at the end of strings at the tail piece or in the peg box. However, I could not tell by looking at the color of wrap on the strings because they were not the ones I was familiar with.
I searched the information on the internet and found a wonderful resource, the Strings ID chart at Lashof Violins (in Gaithersburg, MD, USA) web site:
Thank you for the beautiful chart, Lashof Violins !
