An excellent new string - well worth a try
9 out of 10 found the following review helpful

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.

Cons: Nothing

Good buy nice tone

Pros: It has improved my tone and I am really happy with it. A good buy

Cons: I raplaced the Warchall Brilliant string which was not working on my fiddle but seems better on one of my others.

Solved open A harshness issue
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

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!

Russian A (Wachtal) v. Infeld Red A

Pros: A thin string easy to play with a moderately mellow tone but not as 'dark' as the Infeld Red.

Cons: as above
