I thought that I had reached seventh heaven when I decided to try the Thomastic dominant strings but after a while having found a store near by that use to sell them I found that the E on the dominants sounded off like it was never really matched to the set. Having purchased a new instrument last March I knew even though it was a new instrument I would have to replace the steel core strings which were only useful for helping me to get my bridge set up. I had listen to these in a a Fiddler man video which did not rate the string real high I however have to disagree after putting these strings on my cheap $118.00 violin and tuning them I played for only about 15 minutes before I had to put the instrument back in the case and walk away trying to wrap my head around the the tone these strings had produced. Maybe its me I don't know but I've never played an instrument in person that sounded so clean accurate and balanced all I know is as of 20 minutes before writing this review had to order 2 more sets,if I get the same effect from my intermediate violin then I will have to call this one a hit out of the ball park by D'addario. I've been using the the first set since either early April or late March of 2019 and they are still carrying a well balanced tone and the E string actually sounds like it belongs with the set in other words it sounds well matched. To be fair I'm no pro I've only been playing for 8 years but never have I sounded like or been able to produce the sound that I've gotten from this particular set of strings I was literally shocked.
Having no prior experience, these seem like great starting strings. I started violin on June 12 and decided I wanted to try out synthetic core strings after removing the poor quality strings my violin (not from Fiddlershop) came with. They seem to stay in tune reasonably well, though I can’t speak much for the tone as I am a beginner. The E string likes to whistle, which is probably in significant part an issue of my playing. Overall good service and good product.
i've tried all kinds thru the years,put these on couple weeks ago these strings give great balance,gives you a very good bass sound,takes that high pitch violin you have and makes it sound far better than you think,no these are not your upper top tier strings these work great for budget minded folks like myself that can make these strings jam,there far better than fiddlerman strings takes a couple days too get there sound,if your classical these are not for you,for us fiddle players these work great
I love these strings. Fiddlershop is the best!!!!!!
The shipping was very fast and the things purchased were as advertised and the price was fair. My only complaint is I purchased a brown boxwood tailpiece with the fine tuners built in. Howver the tuners were not designed well and just had no change on string tesion when adjusting. One of the fine tuners strpped while trying to adjust it. That was of no use. I was very happy with the composite fine tuner tailpieces. Half the time you can't get the strings to fit into slot on the fine tuner...not the case these, and the tension was easily adjusted and a covered two whole steps.
