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 Warchal's research & development team.
The sound is rich and warm, powerful and clean but with a pleasing texture. The strings also feature a distinctive high quality silking design.
The Amber E string is based on Warchal's newest unique invention (Patent Pending PP 50023-2013). This solution increases the longitudinal elasticity of the string, which results in a significant sound improvement and no whistling. When completely loose, the string is wound like a spring, but straightens out when it is tightened.
Available in Two Tensions:
- Regular - Pure and Sweet
- Forte - Powerful and Bright
Available in Loop or Ball End
I’m curious and love trying different strings but, as far as E strings go, my quest is over. Well behaved (no whistling), long lasting and comfortable. Under tension, the squiggle is hardly perceptible… It’s actually pretty pleasant to the touch.
The Warchal E deserves a special mention: it seems to have it all.If your violin is prone to whistling it addresses it instantly and this is not all.Its other features are even more remarkable from a general point of view.Beauty of sound and ease in playing is where it is unsurpassed,although Pirastro No 1 can also hold its own. In terms of projection it's as good as any top ranked E string I have tried and because the E is the least expensive,I have tried quite a few.Importantly Warchal Amber Set is a newcomer and that is where it has gained.The smooth feel under the fingers and clean articulation with a minimum effort are probably due to recent advances in string design techniques.Finally do n't be alarmed by the spring it in co-operates- as you tighten the string it goes away and the playing is silky smooth.The Warchal E combines very interestingly with other string sets so try it for yourself.
For years I've been having unpredictable squeaks and whistles on my violin E string. I was recommended this Warchal Amber Violin E string. As soon as I fitted the string and played it for the first time the tone was unbelievably brilliant. So pure and precise. My playing improved with confidence and hitting the high notes was s shear pleasure. I cannot speak highly enough of this string.
This string, to me, has a wonderful tone and playability, not loud, but seems to project well. I prefer the tone of the Amber E to wound E's I have tried, including my favorite, the Helicore wound E, which can be very bright and piercing, but that will depend on one's preference, and the violin. The Amber E blends well with the Ascente set, btw.
Does what it’s marketed as—non-whistles :)
