Thomastik-Infeld - Product Catalog

Otto Infeld and Franz Thomastik join forces and found Thomastik-Infeld in Vienna. The Vienna-based string forge is already developing and producing extraordinary strings for violin, viola, cello and bass in the year Charles Lindbergh crosses the Atlantic Ocean. Although Thomastik-Infeld’s workshops were completely destroyed in World War Two, the founders hold onto their enthusiasm and innovative spirit. Just five years after the war ended, Thomastik-Infeld’s steel rope core string conquers the music market, closely followed by strings for mandolin, mandola and jazz guitar. Thomastik-Infeld has 20 employees by this year. Just two years later, their team spirit and passion bore the next fruits of their labor and Spirocore, the flexible spiral rope core string, impresses musicians worldwide. Just one year after Apollo 11 landed on the moon, Thomastik-Infeld revolutionizes the world of strings again. The world’s most widely played and best-known synthetic core strings Dominant are launched; together with strings for banjo and oud to join their orchestra. Only two years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, there are 140 employees working at Thomastik- Infeld in Vienna. 1919 1927 1950 1958 1970 1991
