Should we select a quartet or a trio. A string quartet covers the parts more fully than a trio and has a warmer sound. The difference in volume is negligible so your choice should be based on the sound you prefer. Listen to each and select the one you like best! A string trio makes a beautiful sound and is a popular selection as well and is slightly lower in cost. Do we need a PA system? Click sound system for more information. If you are having an outdoor event you should be sure your planner knows you have a string ensemble, and that they are seated close to your guests.
