Great E but...
9 out of 12 found the following review helpful

Pros: The E string is great. The sound is sweet and not overpowering. It whistles a bit more than Pirastro but worth a try.

Cons: The A,D and G strings take ages to settle down. Whilst a pirastro set would be almost immediately playable, this set took more than a week before it stops de-tuning constantly.

Very disappointing. Will have to remove strings.
7 out of 9 found the following review helpful

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: They took a long time to settle - 10 days - but it was not worth the wait. The tone is metallic and whistles. You need to press hard into the string to get any strength of sound and there is little tonal colour or warmth. Perhaps other violins will respond differently but I have given up on these strings and will be removing them. An expensive mistake. Will go back to Evah Pirazzi.

Easier to buy via internet

Pros: Good Price compared to others. Quick response to enquiry to trace the packet.

Cons: Web-page for ordering the violin strings were not logical, so had to try several times. Delivery was more than 1 week.

Lovely strings - dreadful playing.

Pros: They are very pretty.

Cons: Sadly, the sound I make is still appalling!

Other: Shame you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

Not happy this time

Pros: I have used Larson strings for years and am usually very happy with them

Cons: on this occasion the G string and the D string sound terrible and really am not happy with them at all
