Silver on synthetic core. 3 tensions
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful
Pros: I won't use anything else on my viola. The warm rich tone is just what I require from this string as it blends well with my Obligato G and also the Larson A. These strings are powerfull enough for a large orchestra and the sound carries well. These strings will outlive many other brands.
Cons: No negatives at all.
Beautiful sounding string.
Pros: Lovely tone, smooth feel. Reasonably priced.
Cons: Took about two weeks to 'settle in'. It stretched a little , especially in the first few days, but got less and less, now it stays in tune between playing.
Other: I upgraded my D and A strings to Pirastro Obligato and kept my Dominant C and G. They blend in well for the moment but as they are so good I'm tempted to upgrade the others!

Pros: I have recently put Pirastro Obligato D, G and C strings and Larsen A on my bargain-basement Chinese viola and they have considerably improved the tone quality making it richer and more responsive.
Cons: The difference is all positive so no complaints.
