Not quite a string for all seasons
10 out of 12 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very comfortable under the fingers, easily responds to the bow, and can produce an appealing tone with power (when needed) or subtlety (ditto). The strings really do need a week to settle down. Rather less expensive than many strings but certainly not a 'poor relation' to other manufacturers - don't let the fact that they are American put you off.

Cons: On my 16.5-inch viola the tone becomes less and less focussed as one rises up the string into high positions - one really has to work with the bow/fingers to get a 'shape' to the required pitch.

Other: For a violist who, for the moment, is not going to venture up the fingerboard very much, these strings are a good purchase and will last a good while.

Helicore. Faulty A-string?

Pros: I have just put the Helicore set on my viola. All three lower strings (C, G and D) sound fine and have plenty of resonance.

Cons: The A-string, however, was a big disappointment. The sound when I drew the bow seemed 'to break up' - so much so that I wondered if the string was perhaps faulty. I have now replaced it with a completely different string (Pirastro Permanent Medium) and that sounds fine. So I don't think it's my viola or bow that's at fault.
