These are surprisingly long lasting strings!
I was really surprised that these strings lasted about a year on a violin that I usually play several hours a week. They are generally even in their tones, fairly bright and capable of a good level of sound which cuts through the guitars and banjos even when I'm nowhere close to the microphone. I did notice they are a bit harder to play with a more edgy sound if I neglect removing rosin from them after an hour or so of playing. They're not as warm sounding as I'd hoped, but they fill their niche nicely. They also pick up bow sounds a bit more than I like if I don't keep the rosin accumulation down or if I'm getting tired and starting to slack up on my bowing technique. However nobody but me seems to notice that, since bow sounds are common with country music and many players actually try to increase them.
Excellent; the stings came in the mail quickly and were easy to put on. The sound is awesome from my violin now.
They were perfect
There were just like I planned to be. Thanks you, and also arrived really quick
Loud and bright but not warm and sweet.
I guess I was wanting something different, this is the most money I have ever spent on strings and I was hoping for something more. Maybe they will warm up over time. They project very well and are quick to respond, bright and precise. But I wanted something warmer and sweeter sounding. I'm switching back to the Red Label Super Sensitives for my Strad copy.
Good strings but not for me
These are high quality strings. Excellent sound but high and cool, not the warmth I was looking for.
