Historically popular choice of professional string players. For those seeking the traditional gut sound.

Pros: They bring out the best in both my violins, producing a nice woody sound with plenty of over and undertones. The sound is slightly fuzzy and less bright and piercing compared with Dominant strings and I like that.
Cons: They don't like changes in room temperature and weather conditions so cause plenty of peg twiddling between movements! Quite expensive and not the most durable strings.
Other: I've tried a number of strings on my two regularly played violins over the years and always come back to Eudoxa despite the cost and their quirks. Both instruments have quite different voices and strengths/weaknesses but Eudoxa strings bring out the best in both, and in one, helps control its rather loud output by broadening the sound while toning down the volume a little.

Pros: Nice clear sound, projects well on the A and G.
Cons: D string took a long time to play in, far longer than the others, and has a bit of a fuzzy tone quality even 2 weeks after putting on. Tuning is less stable on all strings than previous gut-core sets I have used, and the sound less rich, but still plenty of overtones and good projection.
Other: would consider swapping the D for something that matches better, the passione solo I had on before was too bright in comparison, but perhaps it would be worth considering matching it with an Oliv D or a regular Passione string. The D'addario Golden spiral solos are also a nice sound, if a little less responsive than one needs.
Pros: Lovely tone, very nice under the fingers and suit my violin very well.
Cons: 3 weeks in and they still haven't settled at all. Over the course of a 1 hour lesson with my teacher they needed retuning twice, not including tuning up at the start!
Other: I love the sound, but if they don't settle soon then I won't be buying them again. They're much less stable even than other gut strings I've used.
Mostly positive :)
Pros: Lovely tone, really great for using it to open up an instrument. Due to the gut cord, force me to think more about my bow technique in order to make a good sound.
Cons: Tuning is definitely not easy to maintain, especially in area when humidity and temperature is not stable.
Nice mellow sound for the right instrument
Pros: Lovely rich sound ( pj the right instrument. I have a southern German violin about 1850. On my French violin I use obligato with a much brighter sound which would not be nice on the mellow instrument) Do need tuning a lot but WORTH the effort
Cons: Not much! I just enjoy this sound
Other: Strings need to match the instrument

Pros: Very nice tone on the G, D, and A. Strings speak quickly without excessive bow pressure or stroke.
Cons: Not as good at holding pitch as synthetic strings, but getting better after the first week or two. E string is a little squeaky but holds pitch well and has good tone.
