Amazing. I am a new violin player. I started with Prelude strings. Which were just loud. But clearly were good strings. Then I wanted softer and I bought Pro'Arte. Which I had to get used to. They felt off but I did get used to them. But with the Eudoxa string set. I feel like I am home. The sound is beautiful. I have no problem carving notes from them. I feel like they sing. I am in love. They feel wonderful to my hand. I am so excited to play all the time now. Thank you for your service!
These strings turned my 1920-ish, garish sounding (probably Mittenwald) fiddle into a purring ***** cat under my ear. True that gut core strings require a ton of tuning and re-tuning but that seems, with these Eudoxas, to apply mostly to the first week - 10 days. After that, they are much more stable than I had feared; so much so that I will be getting a set for the violin I use in my community orchestra when rehearsals resume! As a reference, I’ve tried Obligatos, Warchal Timbres / Ambers and Brilliants, and EP Green and Golds. The Eudoxas are a horse of a different color. With the stiff G and D strings, they are familiar enough feel-wise. I say this in comparison to a lovely set of pure gut (unwound) strings which suited neither my technique nor my instruments. Final comment… I love the sound under my ear so much that I don’t feel I need a musician’s earplug in my left ear when practicing !
