Aluminium and gold on gut. Supreme quality benchmark string.
Knot ended string, not recommended for use in fine tuners.

Pros: The Pirastro Olivs are very expensive strings, but they make my very modest violin sound warm and give a fantastic consistence of tone across all strings. They also bed in very quickly, which is a bonus. I look at the other strings on offer every time I have to buy a string, especially a G, but I like these too much to change.
Cons: Obviously the cost...
