Aluminium wound on gut.
All strings are ball end, full size, medium tension unless specified.
Pros: This string has all the tonal qualities i want!
Cons: It takes some experience to use, need for mastering the placement of bow on the string. If You are not paying attention it will squeal occasionally.
Other: Well worth the "effort" of taking care of place of contact which You will need to master anyway.
Great product, great service - highly recommended!
Pros: Usual magnificent strings, Oliv Label, love the sound of them!
Cons: The price - but you get what you pay for and they are worth every penny!
Other: Great service from String Zone - and not that many UK places seem to stock Oliv at all...
