They do what they promise!
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: This is a really good string! Does what it promises (it has never whistled in the 4 years I've been using it!)and at the same time it has a good, rather bright tone which is equally as good as any of the Pirastro and in my opinion far better than the Dominant E's. A good investment!

Cons: Like one would expect, they don't have a particularly long lifespan - in my case they last about 2 sometimes 3 months before they begin to unravel. But this isn't really such a bad thing as this problem is pretty common with E strings anyway.

Excellent string
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: As well as doing what it says on the tin, i.e. never a whistle, the string produces wonderful tone on my violin and is gentle on the fingers.

Cons: No cons to report.

Other: The first time that I put this string on my violin I was a bit nonplussed by it appearing to be sectionalised. However, it went on very naturally and I haven't looked back. I notice that the packaging of the strings has recently altered. I am not sure whether the formulation and performance of the strings has changed, though.

If troubled by whistles, this is the answer

Pros: Sounds fine, lasts well, does not whistle on open string.

Cons: I tried an Evah which sounded better still on stopped notes when new, but it whistled like mad, so I quickly went back to the Kaplan. No regrets.

Brilliant non whistling E string.
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Does what it says on the tin; it really doesn't whistle! Which is great as previous E strings wouldn't stop squeaking (nothing to do with me, i promise). Doesn't tend to slip out of tune after you fit it. I wouldn't fit my current violin with any other E string!

Cons: Feels a little rough under the fingers when it's new, but it smooths up quickly with use. Also very loud when new although this may not be a bad thing!

No noticeable difference

Pros: Err? It was the right length???

Cons: First string sent broke on fitting (excellent next day replacement service from String Zone). However, I don't think the non-whistling e string has made any difference to the sound
