Silver or aluminium on synthetic core. Medium gauge, full size
Good but not perfect
Pros: Nice string. Settled very quickly. Nice array of colours.
Cons: Not quite as good as the silver wound string, however every violin is different. The sound is also a little more metallic than its silver counterpart. Nevertheless, still a good string
Other: If stuck between the two, go for the slightly more expensive silver wound string.
Peter Infeld - the strings for warmth and power!
Pros: I phoned to ask for advice on which strings to give more power and warmth to a 1 year old 7/8 violin and found that these strings transformed the tone, which was immediately noticed! Putting Peter Infeld strings on this violin is the best thing I have ever done! thank you so much!!
Other: The man I spoke to certainly knew his stuff and was able to give me expert guidance. As a very small woman I had to chance to a 7/8 violin but was loathe to do so because I knew I would lose out on tone, but these strings have really helped.

Pros: After trying 8 different combinations of different makes of strings for my violin, I found that the best sounding for projection and tone are a Peter Infeld D and G, a Warchal Russian style A and a Pirastro Gold Label E. BUT, those are the best for my violin. As every violin is different, they may not work for you. The only way to get the best combination is to spend a lot of money and maybe, have a lot of spare strings used for just 3 weeks.
