D addario helicore 3/4 a string

Pros: These strings are great for children as they keep their pitch very well. The tone is good too. I like it to be able to purchase single strings rather than sets.

Cons: Funnyly we need at least 2 a strings a year, no others, they unravel at some stage.

Titanium or Aluminium

Pros: This is the first time I have tried the Titanium wound 'A' string. I always get through the Aluminium 'A' in only a short time, well before the others, so I thought I'd try the Titanium version. I can not tell the difference in sound or playability verses the Aluminium one and time will tell on its longevity. Lets hope it lasts!

Cons: None

Other: If it lasts I would rate it as 5 star!

Pros: My favourite range of strings. Especially the E, which has a much thicker timbre than Dominant(which I found can be very 'brittle' or thin in sound, and also the windings seem to break much quicker. The A string keeps also keeps it's brighter sound, and lasts, way longer than Dominant.

Cons: n/a

Other: n/a

A better value 'Russian A'

Pros: Reliable and very stable string that readily speaks clearly. Blends well with numerous steel Es. I find the light steel A balances well with medium synthetic D and G.

Cons: It doesn't bring bags of complexity but your instrument and choice of other strings may already be sufficient anyway.

A good make of string.

Pros: These strings are warm and stay in tune. I bought a full set in Aug 2015 but I caught the A with the frog and damaged it. The replacement settled in quickly.

Cons: None

Other: String zone are quick off the mark with orders and delivery.

Cons: No cons!
