WARCHAL STRINGS establishes the ideal tension for each string and manufactures only that gauge. In short, WARCHAL makes the right decision for you every time. And nowhere is this out-of-the-package optimization more evident than in their KARNEOL violin strings.
KARNEOL strings are forgiving, offering maximum warmth and balance, not to mention what some players have called velvet-like overtones and bell-like resonance.
If you need less projection but still want a complex, balanced sound, we highly recommend trying WARCHAL KARNEOL
So far I have liked these strings. Slightly on the warm side, good resonance, fairly balanced set. The E-string whistles a bit but it isnt as bad as some. Great strings for the price. I would recommend these over Dominants and they are less expensive.. Two thumbs up. I look forward to trying the other Warchal sets.
These are really great strings, and an *exceptional* value. In my opinion these strings are easily as good as many selling for almost double the price. Warm and very resonant, I don't think I've ever seen or heard so many sympathetic vibrations from other strings on my violin. I haven't done a recording so I've only heard them under the ear, but with these strings the violin really rings out--but not in a boomy way at all (which I associate with higher tension strings) but in a full and gorgeous way. My instrument already leans dark/warm, and sets that are marketed toward having a more warm/broad tone can push it towards sounding too muddy, but the Karneols are still amazingly clear. I personally miss having a little extra edge on the tone, but that's personal preference (and my instrument). These are lower tension strings, which I appreciate having more options for, and they feel very elastic and soft under the fingers. Before even putting them on it was remarkable how pliant they felt straight out of the package, and extremely soft too.
After playing on D’Addario's Prelude strings for a while, I switched to this Karneol set and immediately fell in love. They’re warm, resonant, and very responsive.
I was very pleased with this, my first interaction with Fiddlershop. My order came when promised and the price was competitive. I'm sure I'll order again.
I love these strings! They are very quick to respond, smooth feeling under the fingers, and have a clear, beautiful tone. Their low tension also makes them easy to play. For the price I don't think you can do better than these strings.
