Pros: For those of us who remember that the viola is not a violin, a quality synthetic A is a good reliable alternative to gut and produces a warm sound as opposed to the many steel strings that are far too bright
Other: The tension of this A string is very compatible with synthetic D strings and hence playing between the strings is seamless and very comfortable on the fingers
Excellent quality on a budget.
Pros: Good quality and price
Cons: The loop was an experiment, most people should be OK with the ball instead.
Other: The Karneol range belies it's low price when it comes to quality. It's got a good solid tone, but for some instruments it might be too bright. Still a good tone.
