A little disappointed

I was expecting great things from these strings, given the other reviews and raves elsewhere. I must say I am not too impressed. The strings took a while to settle in, which I expected for synthetic. The E is too harsh, and the G string almost immediately began to unwind from the nut upward to the peg, and will have to be replaced soon before it breaks. I give these strings a C+.

Awesome strings!

Really love these strings on my Fiddlerman Concert Violin! Produces a nice warm tone and is exactly what I was looking for! I love the E string and have rarely needed to make any tuning adjustments to the E. Also the rest of the strings settled within a few days and I really haven't had to make many adjustments when tuning. Very happy with my purchase as always!


Great sound!

I waited a few days before writing this review, and after the string settled in, I am hearing much more grip and warmth coming from the instrument. The string indeed does have a complex tone, but is no way muddy or dull. It fit really well with my new bow, and the Holstein Premium Rosin. Definitely buying again, it's a great match with my violin.
