Wonderful projection & colour possibilities
22 out of 23 found the following review helpful

Pros: They are wonderful sounding strings, with many colourful overtones and they are comfortable to play under the finger owing to their fairly low tension. Wonderful for solo performance and chamber music owing to their projection and their ability to blend with other instruments, and have a long life. I've used them on two violins, one from the 1850s and one 1776 violin, both to great effect. They sound good on recordings as well.

Cons: The E string squeaked a little at first, but eventually the sound rounded out for a full bodied top register.

Other: I'm in the process of trying out several string brands, and this is one of my favourites so far.

Excellent alternative for older instruments
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: These strings are unusually low tension, and therefore suit older instruments well. On my (Dutch, 17th century) violin they produce a full, brilliant and very satisfying tone. Good value.

Cons: Better when played reasonably loud - at very soft volume levels a little of the character is lost.

strong sound
3 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: Super sound, rich and vibrant. Really pleased with these and would buy again.

Cons: Nothing really, apart from perhaps the volume is definitely louder than the standard Warchal set I got, which might make you stand out a little more when playing in orchestra's or other ensembles.

Fine strings for an older instrument

Pros: Generally, I like Warchal strings, with a preference for Amber and these Brilliant Vintage (I also like the Russian A).I have them on a Richard Duke Snr. instrument - the lower tension is kind to old violins - and find the results very satisfactory indeed : even across the range, warm but with some 'edge' so that the violin rings out as it should and pleasant under the fingers. Warchal strings are relatively recent to the market, but they have widened their product range in a short time and are now, I think, very competitive - well worth a look if you haven't tried them,.

Cons: Nothing
