Alternative to regular A strings
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Testing out the low tension version as an alternative to medium.

Cons: Unfortunately, there was a break in the string winding after a few days intense playing, and then inevitably made worse by all the position changing and technical practise that I do.

Other: Feels a bit thin. Prefer a thicker string.

Stronger,cleaner and still have the good sound.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: They lastt longer than aluminium wound, and they dont make the fingers dirty. About the tune there is no big difference,possibly a little sharper but that is only a bonus acording to my taste.

Cons: There semes to be more of failures in the manufaktoring than of the aluminiumwounded,but maybee I just had bad luck.

Other: I only wish ther were more brands that made the same type of string so I could compare,fex.pirasto and thomastik of same construktion.

Responsive, sweet-sounding A

Pros: The body and material of this A string has the edge over the aluminium version in touch and responsiveness. Settled down relatively quickly.

Cons: No cons in the short time I've been using it.

Not for my violin

Pros: It was fun to try something new

Cons: the feel and sound of this string was not for me, or my violin. I had it on just a few minutes. I disliked the feeling and the smell, as well as the sound of it. I bought it to compare to the normal Obligato A, which I am very happy with as it is more resonant, less shrill.

Synthetic string with a different winding
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Wound in chromesteel, this synthetic string feels different to regular strings wound in aluminium. The string is slightly thinner and feels stiffer, but labelled as medium tension. It's a different squeeze under the left hand which took a few days getting used to. But after that everything fine. Worth a try for performers looking for the elusive perfect A string

Cons: none
