Excellent strings at a reasonable price
7 out of 10 found the following review helpful

Pros: These were recommended by a knowledgeable friend. They're on my Peter Goodfellow violin (2003) and suit it down to the ground, with a wonderful combination of strength, fullness and warmth - the violin, which is excellent, sounds as well as it has ever done. I've used them for only about 4 weeks now so have nothing to say about durability, but as far as quality of sound is concerned, I am very impressed.

Cons: Nothing

Best strings yet
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: I have tried various makes of strings over the years and these are the best by far. I presently play on an old violin and these seem to suit the instrument, I also have a violin by a modern maker and they are fantastic on that instrument as well.

Cons: nothing

Other: The price is reasonable compared to other quality strings

LV's -Clean, clear and sing like a dream!

Pros: I love these strings..... I have a Hidersine that came with horrid strings and these were the recommended ones in the music shop. I immediately liked them and the difference they made was huge (and I bought a better bow). I then bought a hand made violin from my local luthier and he had stringed it up with Zyex....I just didn't get on with them so changed to a set of Larsen Virtuoso, medium tension ball end for the E, wow!! it sounds amazing and on this violin they sing even more. They settle quite quickly, I find them to be really responsive and they have a beautiful tone. I will definitely buy them again. I have tried Pirastro Obligatos and Evah's and these are still my favourite.

Cons: Nothing

Other: Great service from The String Zone too :-)

Loud, nice feeling and nice sounding

Pros: Low tension and gliding feel. Volume Brought a lot more to the table than Larsen tzigane ( previous strings)

Cons: Slightly pricey but yet to see how they last so could be worth the extra?

Other: Much more bright and metallic sounding than the Tzigane range but to be expected. However the metallic sound is good and clear

Fine full and fast fiddle strings

Pros: Good rich well balanced sound quickly stable and without the initial harshness some synthetic strings exhibit. Double stops work well. Fast enough in response for jigs and reels, full enough for airs.

Cons: No cons so far

Lovely tone and good dynamic range

Pros: Found the tone less harsh than another similarly-priced brand I had previously used. Good dynamic range and doesn't lose quality of tone when playing softer unlike previous strings I had used. The lower strings are particularly resonant.

Cons: Haven't made my mind up about the E string yet, but it certainly has improved with playing in.

Not really worth the price or the faff.

Pros: Good sound, settles in well.

Cons: I've had two D strings that have snapped on after the other. Not best quality string and probably not worth the price.
