The Amber string set has been developed with the aim of achieving the sound quality of the best gut strings without any tuning instabilities. The set features W-Core®, a completely new core material developed by our Research & Development team.
The sound is rich and warm, but still has texture. The strings also feature a distinctive high quality silking design.
The Amber E string is based on the newest unique invention (Patent Pending PP 50023-2013) which increases the longitudinal elasticity of the string and results in a significant sound improvement and no whistling.
The E string is Available in Medium Tension only
- Ball End or

Great strings for my violin
My instructor recommended Warchal Amber Violin strings. I wanted a mellower, richer sound, and my current strings gave a sound that was too bright. The Warchal strings were like magic - such a difference, I could not be more pleased.
These are my new go to strings.
Fiddler Shop is a great place to do business with.
excellent string set
-I am a fairly advanced player and teacher. First Fiddlershop has excellent service. Now- Warchal Amber. This string set is warm and subtle under the fingers. Very easy playing with nice overtones. I have used Evah, Oliv, Obligato, Dominants and Tonicas. Pricewise these are economical which makes up for my experience that they do not hold up quite as long as Dominants- I play a lot.,, but the tone and feel also are much closer to gut. Regarding the "spiral" E- I have never had a whistle problem. My preferred E is a Jargar Forte. I don't care for the spiral (maybe I'm just too old) I give them away to other orchestra members. Another plus about Ambers - I find them very kind above 5th and 6th position and while my fiddle is very well balanced across the range, I feel the Ambers support that balance well and are not strenuous on the fingers.
Warchal String Set.
Fiddlershop is a pleasure to work with. Strings are a reasonable price and a solid product possessing a wonderful clear tone with a nice projection.
Good D & Good G
I was on this site because I ordered both crisp & supple Leatherwood rosins. I came upon the review for strings. I am MEH on this Warchal Amber E. I have an early 1800's violin & I am a professional violinist. At the moment, all of my strings are Warchal, but I only use the Amber set for my E string & only when I am fiddling I have tried virtually every, single string set out there -- every price point. I find this Warchal E to do what it advertises - no whistling, BUT it is not as colorfulor as clear as the Evah Pirazzi E. The Evah Pirazzi E is the one that I would use to perform something more intricate & expressive. To me, the Warchal E sounds so flat & nearly tinny. But again, I do still use it for fiddling because I use a pick-up when I play, so lack of projection is something I can work with & very fast fiddling numbers require no dynamic depth-related nuances from one string, as I am often playing more than one string at a time. No whistling while fiddling fast/hard is a great selling point. I use the Warchal Brilliant Vintage for my D & G (love them), as well as the Warchal Russian A (love that too). I have also used the Warchal Brilliant (not Vintage) before Warchal made the Vintage series. It is a better fit for my violin. If you can buy Warchal strings on sites like this & SW Strings (they are less expensive there), it is a good bargain. On Amazon, they charge more than twice what they should for them. Now that I think about it, my favorite E string is probably the Lezner Goldbrokat. I definitely need to circle back around for it. It does not last me more than a few weeks, but it is so inexpensive & it is so worth it. Decades ago, my violin teachers would encourage me to buy sets of strings, so I had gotten into the habit of just forcing myself to take on all of the strings from a particular set. I am really glad I don't do that any more. I wish someone would have told me that it would be such a good idea to try out different string brands, but ONE string at a time. I have never found a full set that lends all of my strings to sound their best. Mixing & matching has been really eye-opening. Doing this definitely elevated the quality of sound I was getting from my violin.
