Silver on synthetic core.
Medium tension only
All strings are ball end, full size, medium tension unless specified.
Lovely D for my fiddle, easy and light
Pros: Settled in quickly. Silver-wound so no more black fingers. Nice and light to touch, great for folk fiddling, especially for learners like me.
Cons: Struggled a little with the ball end but that could be my new, not broken-in new fine tuners.
Other: Great match with my Violino A. Perfectly complements the tone of my warm and mellow French workshop fiddle but provides enough brightness for jolly tunes like polkas and hornpipes. Matched also with Pirastro Aricore G and Aricore E but don't like the E string much to play as it's like thin cheese wire. Will go back to Goldbrokat E.
