Improves confidence playing high
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: I always dreaded going up the finger board on the e string, even at grade 8 but since being the Gold Label e my confidence has improved greatly and I find myself being much more comfertable playing higher notes. Before getting the Gold Label e, higher notes always sounded squeaky and the clarity decreased as the frequency increased but the new string changed this. It produces a very clear and sweet sound.

Cons: I found that the string crossings on to the e string squeak a little. But to be honest that's probably just down to my technique but I didn't have that problem before.

Other: Blends in well with an Evah Pirazzi set -it has the same power.

Awesome gold string
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Great string. Rich and quite loud ( but not as loud as Evah's) they go with dominant really well.

Cons: Not very very durable and gut, so you have to frequently tune it.

Other: Melos rosin goes very well with this. I use light.

Cons: none

Warm and beautiful tone.

Pros: A refined warm tone and so comfortable under the fingers.

Cons: With gut G, D and A, it does not allow the guts to resonate to their fullest extent. Replacing the Gold Label E after 2 weeks with a Jarger Forte E, it sounded like a totally different violin. Perhaps synthetic cored strings go better with the Pirastro E.
