Beautiful strings

Pros: I've used Eudoxa for over 40 years and am never disappointed. Soft under the fingers, easy to play and wonderful tone.

Cons: Nothing negative about these strings

Keen Amateur

Good reliable string and service

Pros: Warm tone, particularly suitable for my viola, which has a particularly mellow lower register

Cons: I would like better top end options, rather than the standard loop, which is difficult to attach to my fine tuners.

Fine sound, but fragile.

Pros: Good full sound, not "boomy". Eudoxa/Olive are easily my preferred strings for sound.

Cons: Fragile. It broke after only two sessions at the point where the loop end attaches to the string, which has happened before (but not so soon) with other Eudoxa viola strings (usually A or D)

Other: Pirastro recommend thin strings if the nut/bridge length is 40cm, which it is on my instrument, but the string nevertheless broke as described.

Tiptoe or roar, a Eudoxa G gives you all and more!
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: The Eudoxa G 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 and have never had cause to change.

Cons: They tend to go off quicker than some strings and need replacing.

Other: Whether using high or low positions, in a Bach suite or a Haydn quartet, hitting the fortississimo button in a Tchaikovsky symphony, or gliding along pianissimo in Mahler, the Eudoxa G has sensitivity, character and is unfailingly responsive.
