D'Addario Zyex synthetic core viola strings for a rich, warm sound.
Zyex has a warmer sound than most other synthetic core strings, making them excellent for use on brighter sounding instruments.
All strings are ball end, full size, medium tension unless specified.
Good value, extremely stable and LOUD.
Pros: Settled relatively quickly; warm, full tone on C and G strings. D sounded nice after a couple of weeks. Lasted longer than most other strings I've tried.
Cons: Extremely loud. Very high tension so not the most pleasant to play. Rather dreadful A string. And did I mention they are LOUD?
Other: The most stable strings in the entire world. Possibly also the loudest strings in the entire world. Sound not as pleasant and warm as advertised but reasonably nice.
Good product: a lovely warm, fluid sound and feel.
Pros: Sounds good - warm and fluid.
Cons: The instructions looked a little complicated to the untrained eye, but I didn't fit them myself and the person who did had no problems! A small stain on the C string which I hope isn't a sign of some structural fault. We'll see...

Pros: Settled reasonably quickly and now stay in tune, Easy response and evenness of tone across all strings.
Cons: A tendency to 'crack' with even a medium bow pressure. The A particularly disappointing in the upper registers. Limited dynamic range, generally loud with soft difficult to achieve.
Other: Different windings led me to believe these strings would be an improvement on the earlier ones. For me, tonally disappointing
