The strings we offer are the well-known Fanitullen brand from Norway. Upper strings are available in 10.5, 11, and 11.5 weights. Understrings are available in 22, 24, and 26 weights.
What string weight should I order? For the upper strings, most Hardanger fiddles sound best with size 10.5. If you try 10.5 and feel that the sound is a little weak or shaky, then move up to 11.0. If you keep your fiddle tuned low (in B-flat or A), then you may want to try 11.5. We do not recommend using 11.5 strings for most normally-tuned fiddles (B or higher). For the understrings, most Hardanger fiddles sound best with 22. If the understring sound is very weak you may want to try 24. Some people like to use 22 for the higher understrings and 24 or 26 for the lower ones.
