The Amber string set has been developed with the aim of achieving the sound quality of the best gut strings without any tuning instabilities. The set features W-Core®, a completely new core material developed by Warchal's research & development team.
The sound is rich and warm, powerful and clean but still with a pleasing texture. The strings also feature a distinctive high quality silking design.
The Amber E string is based on the newest unique invention (Patent Pending PP 50023-2013) which increases the longitudinal elasticity of the string and results in a significant sound improvement and no whistling.

Warm tone and great value
Switched from other strings on the brighter end of the spectrum in search of a warmer tone on my slightly nasally instrument, and these really deliver. Nice that they also cost less than other top strings. They take a little longer to settle in and stay in tune than others I've tried, but they're stable enough once they have...Randomly found Fiddlershop online when searching for new strings. Price was good and delivery was prompt!
These strings produce exactly the sound I've always wanted! And, they sound just like in the video. I am so happy with how easily you can switch between the strings without any break in the sound or tone, no squeaking. It flows beautifully and pairs great with my 20+ year-old handmade violin. I can hear the complexity talked about in the video review when I play the open strings. These strings also feel softer under my fingers which I like. Hitting an open string note no longer sounds harsh or too loud. The E string is probably the quietest or gentlest E I have ever played. They work for several styles of music (classical, hymns, carols, Irish fiddle tunes, bluegrass). These were exactly what I wanted and as advertised!
Warchal Amber violin set
I have a violin that I made that turned out extremely well, both in appearance and tone, and is a little on the bright side, and I have been trying out different strings that would bring out the best of this instrument tonally, and after having tried Obligatos, Vision (too bright, but loved them), Dominants, and Zyex (liked them better than the others), I have settled on Warchal Amber for a wonderful warm tone, aftertones, and projection. While the other string sets I have tried may have one of these qualities equal to the Ambers, none have all together like the Warchal Ambers do. And for the price, and quality, they are worth a try if you like a warmer and complex tone. You have to let them settle in for a few days, but the wait is worth it.
Nice improvement on my violin
My teacher approves - she said the Dominants I had before sounded harsh and she likes these much better. (I've got a no-name 1920's German violin.) The coiled E-string looks a bit strange at first, but it went on easily.
I have tried numerous strings on my Doerfel violin and am thrilled with the Warchal Amber strings. They are the warmest with a wonderful resonance. They play so easily in the high positions on all the strings and particularly noticeable on the G string. The response on all the strings in every position makes playing easier and so enjoyable. My search for great strings is over.
