These Synthetic core violin strings are of medium tension, optimized for most players! Each string is individually packed and sealed to protect from corrosion.
When compared to the world's most popular strings (Thomastik Dominant), none of our professionals could tell them apart. Just like the Dominant strings, they are warm and resemble gut strings (while being way more resistant to humidity). They are soft, clear, and rich in overtones. But the best part, they're half the price of Dominants!

I put Thomastik Dominants and Fiddlerman strings on the same violin… made shots with both to test the claim that they should be comparable. Guess what: on this violin the Fiddlerman strings actually sounded considerably better than the Dominants!
Very good overall experience. It took a few weeks for the strings to settle, but now they have a sweet, somewhat mellow sound, very pleasant to hear. Of course they can shout and ********* just as well when called for. I feel they are slightly less penetrating than Obligato strings, but overall I am very satisfied with them. I'll be using them for some solo work soon, and I'll see how they'll do in my orchestra work in the future. Congratulations1 You have a very fine product!
I love these strings. Not all strings are the same on all violins, not even the same make violin. On my Rudoulf Doetsch 4/4 violin, these strings bring such wonderful warmth. My violin is on the warm side on its own, which is my preference because I love a warm sounding violin for much of what I like to play, and these strings bring out just a tad more warmth. Are they as warm as Obligatos? No, but I did not expect them to be, nor do I want to shell out money for more Obligatos now that I tried these. These are often compared to Dominants. I have tried both on my violin. Rudy came with Dominants. They were warm, but I wanted more warmth. These Fiddlerman strings did that. I hear a much fuller warmth than I heard with Dominants. The same beautiful warmth, but Fiddlerman seemed fuller, to my ears. I am not an experienced violinist, but my ears know what they like. A string sound or tone that I do not care for really irritates me, and hinders my playing ability. and these strings are music to my ears. I would highly recommend these strings. I would highly recommend Fiddlershop, in general. If what you want is not on the site, call and ask if they can get it. If you order is $25 or more, shipping is free. Customer service is the absolute best, they truly do care about the customer, and truly love the string instruments. Their employees are the best. If, on the rare occasion, you have an issue, just contact them, they will absolutely make it right.
Excellent as usual.
I wasn't sure when ordering but what the heck the price was right. I put them on a 1851 Julesgrandjoh and the tone blew me away, great. I'll oprder a coup[le more sets.
