Pros: Quick settling-in period. Tone is quite warm, similar to Pirastro Obligatos. I think they fit in the Corelli range between the soft Crystals and the brighter and more powerful Alliance.
Cons: Can't think of anything 'bad' to say about them.
Other: A good upgrade from something like Thomastic Dominants, if you don't want to pay for the more expensive Pirastro Obligatos.

Pros: The strings are smooth and loud and stay in tune. The A and e are lasting longer than the Crystals.
Cons: The e string tended to whistle when I first got it. I have never had an e string whistle before. I found that using slightly more rosin fixed the problem.

Pros: Lovely warm tone compared with my usual Dominants
Cons: Taking a while to settle in,
Other: Tried these strings for the first time on the basis of other people's reviews and I have not been disappointed. I have a fairly modern instrument, 1980's German. These strings produce a much warmer tone than my usual brand of strings (Dominants). Particularly pleased with the E-string. They are taking a while to bed in (still re-tuning much more frequently than usual, even after 3 weeks) but it's getting better and is definitely worth persisting with for the improvement in tone. I will certainly be buying these again!
