Fiddlerman Violin String Set Review

ViolinStringReview.com reviewed the string set!

These Synthetic core violin strings are of medium tension, optimized for most players! Each string is individually packed and sealed to protect from corrosion.

When compared to the world's most popular strings (Thomastik Dominant), none of our professionals could tell them apart. Just like the Dominant strings, they are warm and resemble gut strings (while being way more resistant to humidity). They are soft, clear, and rich in overtones. But the best part, they're half the price of Dominants!

Not bad so far might give them a try on my main violin

I've put two sets of these strings on two different instruments and they aren't too bad. Both of the instruments I put them on were a couple of older violins that I rarely played but I wanted to get some new strings on just in case I needed/wanted to play them for some reason. On one of the instruments the e string sounded a bit harsh but I didn't hear that on the second instrument so I'm not completely sure if the issue was caused by the instrument or the strings on that first violin. I'm now tempted to throw a set on my main violin the next time I change my strings to see how I like them as a primary set of strings. I typically use domaint g, d, and a's with a pirastro gold label e which works out quite well but I was impressed enough with these strings on the second violin that it could be worth further experimentation.

These strings sound beautiful!

Thank you for making quality strings in 1/4 size! It was time to replace my D'addario Preludes and decided to try Fiddlerman as we just got the new carbon fiber bow and LOVE it. First order came with a defective/scratchy D string that was unplayable, all other strings sounded beautiful as soon as they were put on the violin. Contacted Fiddlershop and they so generously sent me a new D string (and the other 3 strings!). New D string sounds beautiful, clear, loud, makes the little violin really sing. My daughter is thrilled with her new strings (AND the new bow!) Also we appreciated the key chain and polishing cloth :) Have not yet played with Dominants but I can say these sound better than the Preludes for sure, and at half the price of Dominants! Thank you, Fiddlerman for your 5* products, customer service and website!

Awesome strings!

I received the strings promptly considering the holidays. I bought these strings to replace the Pirastro Violino strings I had on my Carlo Lamberti master series guarneri. I have put roughly 9 hours of playing on the Fiddlerman strings now. The first thing I noticed after stringing these up was how loud they were compared to my almost year old violinos. The vibration feedback while playing is much more pronounced with these strings as well.They ring nicely but the ring doesn't sound as dynamic as the violino strings but not by much. I have to use noticably more bow pressure and finger pressure while playing. The strings are well balanced with each other so string crossing isn't overly noticeable. I still prefer the more rich sound of the violino strings but at my skill level I can't justify the extra cost of violino strings over fiddlerman strings for such a small nuance. Overall I have been enjoying these strings and will definitely buy them again!
