Very pleased

Pros: A sweet tone but still a strong sound ( much better on my instrument than the permanence I had been using which was too bright)

Cons: None

A good gut replacement

Pros: Seems to be more colourful and flexible than a Larson, though perhaps not quite so powerful. I don't need more than this, however, and I keep it until it breaks. which is very rare.

Cons: Has occasionally broken on the bridge when hit too hard, but I take the blame for that.

Other: I have played on Eudoxa A's for many years, only changing in order to deal with very high altitude repertoire in concerts, eg the Paganini Grand Sonata. I find the Obligato a very acceptable compromise between covered gut and synthetic or metal.

Lovely creamy sound!

Pros: Beautiful creamy tone. Reasonably priced. Settled in straight away, no slipping out of tune.

Cons: Nothing! Perfect for my viola.

Other: I upgraded my A and D strings to Pirastro Obligato and kept my Dominant C and G strings. They blend in well, but I am tempted to upgrade them all eventually!

Lovely warm & bold sound
0 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: My A strings always seem to make a horrible sound on the open string unless I press really hard - making quiet passages a nightmare. But not with this string - note speaks instantly.

Cons: Nothing so far - except it makes the rest of my strings sound worse.
