Grade 8+

Sweet sounding string lacking some projection
17 out of 18 found the following review helpful

Pros: Lovely strings with a sweet tone that worked well on my 1850 violin. The G string was good at taming my 1776 violin for a while and gave it a richer sound whilst removing some of the brashness. The G and D lasted a long time and didn't lose quality, and the E was a good match for more than one set of strings. Overall the blend was good in ensembles.

Cons: The A string started to unravel after about 2 months, some time before the other strings. They lacked some projection so were not so appropriate for solo work (though good for chamber music and orchestra).

Good strings, recommended.
5 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: The strings suit the violin I wanted them for. It basically has a poorly set neck, so the bridge is high causing high string tension. The Violono strings are 10% lower tension than Obligato and this means that the violin speaks more easily. Anyway, whether or not my theory is correct, they sound good and play easily on this Caussin violin and are also good value. It remains to be seen how long they last, I typically get 6 months out of Dominants and 9 months out of Obligatos/Eva Pirazzi. Although advertised as the 'warmest' i.e. least bright of the Pirastro synthetics, they are definitely not dull or flat sounding, I like the sound both for classical and folk playing.

Cons: Nothing not to like, unless they fail to last.

A Warm and calming sound on a lively instrument.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: My French violin was too bright and these strings were recommended to me to give it a much warmer sound. This was good advice and now the strings have settled down my instrument is a real pleasure to play.

Cons: None

Gut-feel, mellow and clear. Very easy respond.

Pros: Mellow and rounded sound. Very good respond as it is feels gut-like, due to low tension. Also quite clear, natural sound and well balanced across all four strings, including E string, which I didn't find in other synthetic string sets. For someone who prefers gut strings, but has to occasionally use synthetic ones, this is ideal. Very satisfied with the price too.

Cons: No cons for me.

Violino Violin Strings

Pros: The strings are of lower tension and suited my violin very well, producing a warmer tone. They felt more like gut strings to play on which was surprising but very welcome.

Cons: It's a shame that the loop E string isn't a choice when buying a set. Most professionals would select a loop and not having this choice may put them off even though the loop e string can be bought separately

Less stretch than gut cored. The E sounds 'thin'.

Pros: Have been more attentive to intonation recently. These strings stretch a good deal less than gut cored strings and allow use of tailpiece adjusters. Initially they felt marginally lighter under the fingers than Olive strings and have a slightly softer effect which suits my instrument which is relatively young and bright sounding. The difference in sound is not significant, except the E, unless playing solo and even then I prefer their practicality.

Cons: The E string sounds particularly 'thin' and I replaced it with a gold covered string which, for me, is a much better match.

Other: Limiting the characters to 50 makes it near impossible to give a useful review.
