High Quality synthetic core strings.
Advanced stainless steel. Ametyst strings offer a pure and focused sound which is brighter than Karneol. Although they are intended for better instruments, they will improve the sound of all levels of violins. They have a synthetic core, and normally take approximately three days to achieve tuning stability and optimum tone quality.
All strings are ball end, full size, medium tension unless specified.
Great for folk fiddle, if you want more colour
Pros: I am fiddle player, as opposed to a violinist, mainly English andCeltic traditional. My instrument is a Leopold Widhalm ( mid - late 18th cent.) As most fidlle players have, I have used various brands of steel strings. But I was always aware that my instrument was capable of a better colouration of sound than was possible with steels. Enter Warchal Ametyst strings! Brilliant! All the tonal colouration you would expect with good synthetic core strings, but with that nice crisp steely sound, and good quick response. - Nigel.
Cons: Nothing (so far)!
