From the Manufacturer
Sized to fit long-scale viola (body length 16-16 1/2 inches) with a playing length of 15 inches (380mm), these electric viola strings will fit a majority of standard sized electric violas. They will also work well on acoustic instruments, providing a clear, focused tone while still allowing for tonal subtlety and expressiveness.

Each string is designed to enhance the expressive range of tone sought after by the most discerning players. The set consists of regular tuning strings (A, D, G, C).
