Lovely sound - deep tone, no harshness.
4 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: A good buy for my particular viola - low tension, rich mellow tone, comfortable under the fingers. Settled down quickly and so far sound much better than other more expensive strings I've tried previously

Cons: Nothing so far.

2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Beautiful sound, very even quality of all strings with the exception of C.

Cons: The C string was either faulty or it did not work on my old viola. I waited 10 days before deciding to change it for Vision Solo. The sound of C Aricore was scratchy and cracking - awfully frustrating. Still not sure whether there was a mechanical fault or it simply was not compatible with my viola

Other: On the whole a very good set. I tried it first time wanting to experiment with new (for me) strings. It worked very well, it took some time to settle, at least 10 days, but I am happy now with the quality. One exception is the C string which I had eventually to change

Pros: They feel supple and speak easily. Pretty even tone between all four strings.

Cons: Not as warm a tone as I hoped.
