Happy viola depth.

Pros: The rich and complex tone is gorgeous on my old Dresden viola. I use it with a set of Evahs. The C on the Evahs was too twangy on my viola but this oliv is perfect and works well with the Evahs

Cons: Pricey but you get what you pay for.

Pros: A really exceptional string. Really complex and a true gut sound... Would recomend for new or old instruments. Have been looking for a good C string for a while now, and I have definitely found it! Seems to match well with obligatos G,D as well as Doninats (some will disagree with me. Due to mixing of gut core and synthetics) but as with most things, strings are a personal tast, so just go for why sounds best to you!

Cons: As expected, gut string = unstable. But much more stable than Oliv and after a good play in of about a week, the seeing is stretched and keeps reasonable pitch.

Other: My C string of choice from now on!
