Darol Anger 

Darol Anger's Republic Of Strings, Turtle Island String Quartet founder, Berklee String Department

   

"Out of the many great strings available through D'Addario, the Kaplan Amos are my current favorite. Not only do they have a really warm tone, they are quick to speak and seem to have an extra dimension that is hard to describe, but really increases my desire to pick up the violin and just play... and that is so appreciated!"
