well worth the expense, except for the platinum E
6 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: They speak very rapidly - better than Vision or Dominants. Tone is bright but has depth, warmth and variety as well as power. Longer lasting than many competitors.

Cons: The very expensive platinum E string does not suit my violin - powerful but with metallic overtones and frequent squeaks replacing open strings.

A great improvement.
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: I am a maker. This is the first time I have fitted Peter Infeld strings to a violin. My customer is a professional player and teacher with a beautiful old Italian violin. She says that it has made a substantial improvement to her sound. She immediately ordered a spare set !

Cons: Price ?

Other: None

Smooth warm response.
4 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: Previously I used Eva Piratzzi but switched when I asked James Ehnes what he used after a concert. I feel the sound is warmer and deeper than EP, although I still don't sound like James!!

Cons: Nothing so far after 4 weeks of use.

My favourite.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Smooth, even, squeak free, vibrant. Current string of choice after extensive experimentation with Evah Pirazzi Gold, Larsen Virtuoso, Pirastro Passione Solo and Vision Titanium Solo. Clearly superior on my violin.

Cons: No cons!

Highly recommended
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Settling time and tuning stability, particularly from the beginning, are unparalleled. Good, solid tone, with flexibility for a palette of colours. So far, they haven't died as quickly as other choices.

Cons: The cheapest of the E string choices is a little tinny.

Mellow sound
3 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: G, D and A settled quickly. Made a much nicer, more mellow sound than the previous make I'd been using, and seem to give me a larger palate of colours.

Cons: The gold E string took a long while to settle and whistled like crazy - reverted back to old make for that string. Need to do more research on that string, and try one of the other choices

Cons: nothing

Other: I ordered on line one morning and they arrived in the next mornings post

Nice, warm strings, pity about the E
3 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: Nice warm sound, very soft on the fingers. Held their tune well from the beginning.

Cons: The E string is a bit scratchy and has a wolf note on the 4th (B) which I haven't had with other strings.

Other: These are nice strings, but I'd suggest using them along with a Kaplan Gold E string instead of the E which the set comes with.

perfect,they should maintain their quality longer
3 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: I like beautiful bright, clear, almost solo sound on the strings of Peter Infeld. I think they are very good quality in globale.

Cons: I waited for their resistance will be longer. After about a month and a half E string lost its sound quality. Also tuning of the E string is not already perfect. Nevertheless, I am with Peter Infeld strings happy, a pity that their price is not lower.

Other: May be the reason why I have to change my strings so often is I practice a lot...
