Fiddlerman Violin String Set Review
ViolinStringReview.com reviewed the string set!
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!

My granddaughter and her instructor love these strings. Also BAM on quick shipping
Everything shipped promptly. I attached my setting without any issues whatsoever. I am an adult beginner for the violin. Fiddlerman strings sound sooo much nicer than the red label set I was using before. Will buy again!
I was disappointed with the A and E string the bow seems to slide over them with a very weak sound. The bow just does not grip them like it should. Tried a different rosin and made no difference. Going back to my Visions.
I like these Fiddlerman strings a lot! I think they have even a better sound profile than Dominant strings. I never like the initial metallic edgy sounds of the Dominant set. These strings sound fantastic on a 3/4 Franz Hoffmann Danube violin, which originally came from Shar Music with acceptable budget Overture steel strings. These Fiddlerman strings make the violin completely change its sound colors (in a better way, of course). The violin now sounds more vibrant and colorful. Half star deduction is because these strings don't come in 3/4 size. Yes we can use them for 3/4 violins, but the extra length makes the peg box crowded. Hopefully, Fiddlerman can take notice and start making them in 3/4 size.
I put these at first on a bright violin. After two weeks I had to take them off. They were just over the top bright and thus too scratchy and "sparkly." But hey, I have a plywood $35 violin I keep at a vacation house. It's quiet and timid sounding. Wow! They really perked it up. Now it sounds like a real violin. So I'm recommending these highly, but only for dark sounding violins that you want to brighten up or make louder. Some people say you cannot make such changes with strings. Try these! And, BTW, they are NOT especially similar to the Tomastik dominants which are noted for being sort of un-bright student strings. The Fiddlerman strings are brighter. You can even hear it in the demo videos here.
