Like butter!

I love this for the A string, I needed something that would match the other strings better, and it does. It's warm and clear, and has a beautiful sound. It takes time (a few days plus) to settle in and sound well, and the more I play it the better it sounds. The best part is how silky and soft it is on the fingers. I can play up and down the A string all day and my fingers won't hurt! Glissando bliss. It's my first experience with a gut string, and I love it.
