Versatile with plenty in reserve!
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: The Eudoxa A string possesses just the right balance of response and reserve power, and is in my opinion the most reliable for consistent tone production. I have used it professionally for over 30 years. From time to time I have experimented with a natural gut A, but always seem to come back to the Eudoxa A to make the perfect match with the rest of my viola strings.

Cons: Eudoxa are not the most durable of strings, but I accept that as part of the exchange for quality of sound.

Other: Unlike some other brands Eudoxa works equally well on large and small violas.

Beautiful tone - my long-term favourite string.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Beautiful, expressive tone. My viola really sings with these strings!

Cons: Goes out of tune, so you have to check and retune sometimes during lessons or between movements.

Other: I have been buying Pirastro Eudoxa strings for my viola for 25 years. The only thing that would tempt me to change would be a string which sounded just as sonorous, but stayed in tune for longer.

Pros: arrived punctually

Cons: Used for one day then the metal layer started unwinding in two different places! Small print implies it won't be replaced/refunded
