Grade 8+

Excellent strings at a reasonable price
6 out of 9 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

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.

Cons: Metallic sound. Lack of warm. Very, very loud (comparing to other strings on the same instrument).

Other: .

Grade 8+

Soft "flabby" feel and sound

Pros: Looked the part with attractive packaging etc. came to pitch quickly and were reasonably stable in a variety of conditions.

Cons: Didn't suit my violin I found them to be soft both in feel when bowing and in sound. I soon put the Kaplan gold E string after fitting the Larsens. Within 2 weeks went back to Evah Pirazzi gold.
