75 per cent reliable.
10 out of 12 found the following review helpful

Pros: Well made and smooth

Cons: The E string broke twice before I even got it to pitch and was unusable

Other: As I am 84, I remember using gut strings as a matter of course, but I never remember having such a duff E string.

Strings. For a violin...
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: The violin (an old Mittenwald instrument) had been languishing in a cupboard for years, but once set up with the gut strings it had a new lease of life - sounding lovely now!

Cons: "Can't be blank"?? What if there was nothing I didn't like about it? What am I supposed to do? Write a nice poem perhaps? This is why I very rarely leave any reviews. It may (or may not) be useful to the seller, assuming anyone actually reads them, but they're a real waste of time to the buyer, and often very off-putting.

Good starting point into the world of 415

Pros: They are consistent so if they suit your setup you know what you are getting

Cons: Tension is a little low for some who may prefer to experiment with more specialised strings

Chorda gut strings good value

Pros: They sound good either at a lower baroque pitch or at concert pitch! (So far no breakage problem). And the price is good.

Cons: There is only one of the strings I may possibly have qualms about, the D, but this could well be the instrument which is a 1696 original set-up English violin which I am unused to, and which anyway was previously set up for modern strings!

Good value strings if you fancy giving gut a go
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: G and A strings very good. E string sound is good and it's nice to have the opportunity to try out such an old school approach.

Cons: D string a bit dead and unresponsive, feels thick and inflexible. E string fine so far but already beginning to show signs of strain in the middle (even where not stressed by tying etc).

Other: Allow plenty of time for them to settle down. Overall, not great but good for the money and better than some reviews might lead you to suspect. With a wound D gut string if available would be a nice sounding set.

Excellent baroque strings; smooth and even tone.
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Excellent sound; very even and pleasing sound.

Cons: Only the bottom string is prepared with a knot, so be prepared to tie your own. Not difficult and this is in common with many baroque providers, but it would be very easy to prepare these during manufacture to save the hassle!

Other: Excellent delivery time and service
