A versatile metal core A string with excellent response.
For the old 'Russian' style of the Oistrachs etc. Medium tension, ball end.

Pros: I've used three or four of these and like them very much. They project a sweet, clean, firm, steady sound without any harsness or metallic ring. They articulate very well, as you'd expect, with a steel E, but also with any synthetic core D that I have tried. There is a most attractive warmth about them. I have four very good violins, including an oldish (1904) French one, and this would be my string of choice with all of them.

Pros: I've always had trouble on my violin with the open A sounding harsh, even when I use Helicore (though their Al-wound E is still my favourite). But this string solves the problem, my open A sounds great now.
Cons: Nothing, I'm happy!
