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
- Loop End
Loving the new strings! Warm tone yet crisp sound!
Excellent, Thank you!
These are great strings if you want something similar to gut without the issues gut strings have. Warchal Amber would be a good choice for a violin that might be overly bright in tone. These are very warm and rich sounding strings that have a complex sound surrounding the note. The "E" string is one of the best on the market and I have used that string as an E string on other sets of violin strings. I'm not sure of the longevity of these strings since I haven't used the whole set before. They have settled in fairly quick though. They're very even in volume across the whole set and I really like the "G" strings tone. I would buy this set again for the fiddle I have them on.
Warchal Amber for violin
I have been well pleased with the sound and quality of a Zyex set with a Helicore wound E on my favorite violin, both for great tone and playability, after trying Dominant, Obligato and Vision (regular), so I got the Warchal Amber set mainly out of curiosity after watching Michael's entertaining review. It took 4 days of occasional playing for them to settle, as advertised, but I have to say the result is worth the wait and price, by far. The violin is one I have made, which turned out tonally far better than I expected, and I have to say the same for the Warchal Amber strings. The best way I can describe them, I guess, is that they seem to be saying, "I am happy to be playing this note, and here are some wonderful rich overtones as a bonus. The G is the best I have tried, and the E is as advertised as non-whistling, with a brilliant sweet singing tone. At the price and quality they are worth a try. Don't know about longevity yet, but I am very impressed at this point.
curently the best
I like the Warchal Amber strings better than the Brilliant (better overtones) and better than Evah Pirazzi or Dominant... and on the cello, better than Spiracore / Larsen. I did have a cello A string that soon started unraveling at the pegbox. I don't know if the outfit I bought from (not Fiddlershop) had a counterfeit string slipped in, or whether there are quality control issues. I like the tone.
Wow! What a Great Set of Strings
I have used various strings over time and was always intrigued by the "Russian A" that Warchal makes. Needing strings, I order the Amber string set, although somewhat ironically, it doesn't have the "Russian A" included. My E broke, so I put on the "spiral E" and the A was old, so I replaced both. The deep wonderful tone, the projection and responsiveness were different from anything I had experienced, at least on my violin. I then replaced the G and D since, well why not, and the G is more responsive than any other strong I've used. I still want to order than Russian A, but these strings, at least with my violin and my training (very Russian grip, Leopold Auer method books, and an idiosyncratic teacher) really are wonderful.
