Gold plated steel for a rich sound and corrosion resistance.
All strings are ball end, full size, medium tension unless specified.

Pros: This is the only gold E string that won't whistle - yet retains the fundamental characteristic of a gold E string. (Meaning that the sound is richer than with a non-gold E).
Cons: No cons. The bes sounding E string that I have found.
Other: In my experience - all violins are individuals - it works with Pirastro Violono, Obligato, and Dominant. It does not work with Eva Pirazzis - too rich and powerful by comparison - although I am not a fan of the Eva's. I am also told by a colleague that they are not great with Pirastro Tonica. I suspect that this is for the same reason that they don't agree with the Eva;s.
Useful string to rectify over-bright tone
Pros: Reduced the sharpness and metallic ring of regular E string, giving a softer tone
Cons: My experience was pretty positive
Other: First string I ordered was defective, with breaks in the covering, discernible by touch. The replacement appears to be free of this defect
