Pros: It's warm sound, it complements the aged softness that my violin generates much more than any other string I have tried. It is long lasting and far better than any other string out there.
Cons: I preferred it when they used to be sold to be stored in tubes. They are more expensive than dominants
Richer tone for a modern violin.
Pros: My violin is abou 16 years old, and the tone has taken quite a long time to develop. Being a modern instrument the tone is strong but less sweet than older instruments. I chose the Obligato string for a second time because it added richness to the strong tone. I had previously tried Eva Pirrazi strings, and decided they were more suited to a sweet old violin that needed help with volume.
Cons: I had to open up the adjuster fork because I bought a ball end, and probably should have opted for a looped end.
Other: I play my violin for my own pleasure, and am really enjoying playing as the tone mellows and the right string enhances it.

Pros: I was looking for an alternative A string and purchased the Stark Obligato A. Delivery was fast and efficient as usual. This string delivers a powerful sound but is not best suited to my violin.
Cons: I have Evah D and G and Obligato E but this string did not seem a good match for the other three..It is taking a long time to settle despite hours of daily playing and on my violin gives a rather wooly sound. I like Evah A's but unfortunately they only last me about 3 months. The search for the A continues !
