Nylon cored string offering excellent value for student players.
Perfect for improving the sound of beginner violins.

Pros: Significantly improved the tone of a relatively cheap 3/4 size student violin
Cons: Took several days and regular playing before the strings would stay tuned as opposed to my experience with all metal strings which are quickly stable
Other: Overall good value making this particular student violin much more satisfying to play.
Surprisingly good strings
Pros: I was pleasantly surpised by these after replacing my 1-year old Dominant set. They have a good response and the warm sound of gut strings (which is why I tried them). The whole set is evenly balanced and they have improved to sound of my student violin, which encourages me to practice more. The E string remained in tune after the first day...
Cons: The G,D & A strings took 8 days to settle down. This isn't a problem for me but it might be if you are planning to play in a concert after a few days.
Other: At least I am now adept at tuning with the pegs, which will be a useful skill to have.

Pros: suit my cheap violin of £25 bargain internet purchase rather well, warming the sound. The E I cant really comment on as the bow is if course v cheap and has no tensile strength, thus bouncing wildly on the down stroke but i have a new bow coming from china, £16, carbon fiber hehe, u gotta lov the chinese, they are changing the whole game! Now, the strings cost more than the violin n case but, i will say, worth it in the long run, taming a cheap instrument (reduced from £55 to 25). Hey, chinese, its time for u to go making violin strings that cost the same as my thomastic infeld electric guitar strings, about 12-15 £. Oh, and they are amazing!
Cons: possible E down stroke bounce but new bow may fix that I expect.
Other: violin strings are too expensive. Im waitin for the chinese to modify this market.
