Try if you like gut, or need a more mellow sound.
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: My fiddle is quite bright, verging on the harsh at times. The Obligatos have produced a more mellow A and E, and better power for D and G. It's a late C19 german instrument, designed for gut strings, so it seems natural to try gut sound alikes with it. I like the result. I play classical and folk music.

Cons: Shame they cost more than Dominants. I don't yet konw how long they will last. I used to dump Dominants after 6 months as quite suddenly become more difficult to get a good tone out of. So far the Obligatos have lasted nearly 5 months, still OK.

Excellent if you don't mind the whistling
4 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: A good warm sound.

Cons: The gold string whistles too much for my liking. I have found that the Pirastro No. 1 E string is a much better match for the Obligato strings with the added bonus of no whistling.

pretty but unrelaible

Pros: Looked pretty on my violin

Cons: A very 'unpredictable string.' I wouldn't use it again. Ah well, if you don't try you don't find out!

Pros: First time I have used this particular string.Only been on a few days but medium tension string is crystal clear and resonant with a clean sound. Settled in immediately which is a bonus. No whistling.

Cons: Nothing to date.
