Really rich and warm

I use them with a fiddle that I used to use tinnier fiddle strings with, and love the richer mellow sound.

Dominant but better

I received these strings with my Glasser carbon composite violin, I'm so glad I did, because they are the easiest strings to play I've tried and I never would have done it otherwise. I will compare them do Dominant, because I think it's the most similar set and at the same time the usual reference for violin strings. They are lower tension than Dominant and also larger in diameter, being lower tension allows me to use less bow pressure when playing fast détaché, it's more responsive. Being thicker makes it so much easy to play 5ths and duble stops. The sound is very beautiful, warm, G and D sound more like a "bass" than Dominants which is also big plus for me. Better break in time and tuning stability. Depending on they violin, they could have more volume, I think they are not suitable for the Glasser, but on my main violin (antique wooden violin) they sound louder and project well.

I love these

I love these strings. I have played them on my Soloist violin and I do recommend them and now I am also playing on a Ming Jiang Zhu 905 A and I am extremely happy with the performance, warmth and ring. The tone is beautiful and classy.


I received these

I received these strings when I purchased my Ming Jiang Zhu 905. The strings are incredible. They are by far the most expensive I have ever played on they do ring. Yet another great example of just how much attention to detail Mike and Pierre play on each customer. I intended to continue to use these strings on my Ming. Also I had placed some Zyek strings to see if it would project but I noticed I didn't get same effect.
