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.

It was my first time ordering items from Fiddlershop. I browsed their website & found the Warchal Amber violin string sets. I was happy that they carried them, because some online violin shops did not have them. I called the customer service to make sure they were available. The staff was courteous & friendly. It was very easy to order online, and I received the string sets in 4 days. Great service!
My daughter has used the Warchal Amber strings in the past and enjoys the rich, warm sound. I was very happy to see that Fiddlershop carried this particular set of strings at a great price. I have made several purchases from Fiddlershop and am always pleased with the service and quick shipping - even during a pandemic. Glad to be able to support a well-run small business.
I have a 70 year old German violin. Ive tried dominants which were pretty good, PI which i found to lack character on this violin and Obligatos which i love. When i tried these strings it sounded soo amazing. They have a bad break in making them sound real bright and some surface noise but that only lasts a couple days. They are still brighter than obligatos but are still mellow and they have more character and colors than any synthetic ive tried. The E string was great but the sympathetic vibrations didnt ring as much as a gold label so i still ended up switching it out. Eventually i switched to obligato G and D but kept the warchal A because the obligato A lacked this character and a gold label E. However i would not say obligato is better or worse each set has its pros and cons and i will be going back and forth. The obligatos ring more on sympathetic notes which i use to help with intonation but the character of this set is unmatched by synthetics. This is the experience on my violin which will be different.
Excellent, Thank you!
These are great strings if you want something similar to gut without the issues gut strings have. Warchal Amber would be a good choice for a violin that might be overly bright in tone. These are very warm and rich sounding strings that have a complex sound surrounding the note. The "E" string is one of the best on the market and I have used that string as an E string on other sets of violin strings. I'm not sure of the longevity of these strings since I haven't used the whole set before. They have settled in fairly quick though. They're very even in volume across the whole set and I really like the "G" strings tone. I would buy this set again for the fiddle I have them on.
