2 out of 3 found the following review helpful
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
Full, reliable, warm tone.
Pros: settles in quickly; reliable; gives a good, full, warm tone to my old and delicate fiddle; lasts well and keep a reasonable tone
Cons: Quite pricey but worth it
Other: Stays fairly well in tune in difficult environments with temperature changes
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.
