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.
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...
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful
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
