Pros: Guiseppe Zulberti of Monza fitted Prim Medium Tone violin strings on the instrument he made for me in 1978. Since then I have always enjoyed the clarity and power of these strings, they respond well .... ideal for celtic music.
Cons: I haven't found any problems with these strings so far.

Pros: Bright, good intonation, easy to play, clear tone, good value
Cons: a bit lightweight at the bottom, particularly the G string, might not suit some styles/instruments - even perhaps a bit thin sounding

Pros: They're really loud and bright. The most popular choice for players of old time fiddle music.
Cons: Though I think they're a good set of string and are the defacto choice for Americans who play Old Time fiddle, I found them so bright and loud and harsh they were too much for me so I've opted for Jagers instead. They also feel quite rough.
Other: Get them if you're really confident and want loud bright strings that jump out of the fiddle and (apparently) last ages and ages

Pros: Pure clear sound, not to firm to touch so you can dig in. Stays in tune.
Cons: Can be loud- good for an instrument which has some resonance to it so as to help accommodate the sound that these strings produce.
