Lenzner Goldbrokat Violin E String The original Goldbrokat violin E string is one of the the world’s most popular E strings with violinists at every level. The reason: it is powerful, brilliant and warm, all the way to the end of the fingerboard. It blends unusually well with all string brands. Goldbrokat remains a favourite of artists who play on gut strings, but prefer a steel E string. Now owned by the respected German string firm of Optima, Goldbrokat E strings remain as they have always been – superb strings at a very fair price.
