The Helicore does the trick!
I have an Old Thomas Perry violin that has a dark sweet sound, and I’m a steel string guy. Used Pirastro Ultra Sensitives for years! Can’t get them anymore but I have a pretty good stash. Ran out of G strings so I had to find a replacement. Tried a Cromcore- too mellow, Prim- too buzzy. The Helecore seems hit the mark- more oomph the the Cromcore, less buzz than the Prim! Perfect! Thanks!
Received on time
I received the string as expected. It was appropriately packaged and undamaged
Quick string replacement
Recently was replacing strings on my electric violin and managed to break the G string. Who does that!? Ordered a new one and as expected Fiddlershop sent it right out. Thanks
Ordering was super simple and I received my purchase quickly! Playing with my new string is a delight, the rich tone really sings out! I can't wait to work with Fiddlershop again.
