A good option at a budget price

Pros: I bought these strings to replace the ones provided with a viola outfit I purchased a few weeks' ago in Lerwick. The strings arrived a couple of days after placing the order. The strings have a warm, nuanced timbre and, apart from the usual microtuning, seem very robust and reliable.

Cons: .
