Disappointed, unfortunately

Pros: The sound was good but the cons outweighed the pros for me on this one.

Cons: I bought the string to replace the gold-plated version in a full set I had recently purchased. I did not like the gold one as it 'whistled' and this did not go away with continued playing. Unfortunately this was no better and I have replaced with a wound e string of a different make.

Well rounded plain-steel string
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: As far as a plain-steel string goes, I would argue that this string is well-balanced and matched well to the rest of the set that it comes from. It is not overly bright nor is it dull, producing a fairly well-rounded sound. Higher position playing is nice and clean. There is no overt whistling or tendency to drive unwanted higher harmonics and more than any other plain-steel E.

Cons: The manufacturing quality could be a little bit better. There are two marks found on the playing area of the string that are undoubtedly from holding clamps used in the string making process. I've run across these once in a while before from other makers. Some players might find them annoying because they make bumps in the string, although they do no significantly change the mass per unit length and thus are unlikely to affect tone. In my experience, they also tend to be weak points in the string where breakage is more likely to occur.
