Corelli Cantigas - Decent strings
7 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: Quick settling-in period. Tone is quite warm, similar to Pirastro Obligatos. I think they fit in the Corelli range between the soft Crystals and the brighter and more powerful Alliance.

Cons: Can't think of anything 'bad' to say about them.

Other: A good upgrade from something like Thomastic Dominants, if you don't want to pay for the more expensive Pirastro Obligatos.

Very nice strings.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: The strings are smooth and loud and stay in tune. The A and e are lasting longer than the Crystals.

Cons: The e string tended to whistle when I first got it. I have never had an e string whistle before. I found that using slightly more rosin fixed the problem.

Good value, lovely tone.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Lovely warm tone compared with my usual Dominants

Cons: Taking a while to settle in,

Other: Tried these strings for the first time on the basis of other people's reviews and I have not been disappointed. I have a fairly modern instrument, 1980's German. These strings produce a much warmer tone than my usual brand of strings (Dominants). Particularly pleased with the E-string. They are taking a while to bed in (still re-tuning much more frequently than usual, even after 3 weeks) but it's getting better and is definitely worth persisting with for the improvement in tone. I will certainly be buying these again!

Nice - better than some more expensive strings.

Pros: Nice warm tone, start sounding nice immediately they are fitted. I have a late 19th century German violin that is quite loud and raucous, I find these strings give a great sound and mellow it out slightly without making it quiet. Started on Dominant and Zyex and moved to Obligato last time, but I prefer these of all of them and the price is a nice bonus.

Cons: Not a major hassle but as noted by others these take a little while to stabilise. Be prepared to tune your fiddle quite a bit for the first two or three weeks.

A disappointing set of strings.

Pros: The strings settled quickly and didn't need a lot of retuning.

Cons: I am not happy with the response and tone of these strings compared to other strings I have used. My previous set were Warchal strings which I prefer and would go back to. I chose the Corelli strings because I was advised to use a lighter gauge string on my violin due to its age. I have not used Corelli strings before and would not choose them again.

A little extra but well worth trying

Pros: Extremely impressed as using on my Bridge Aquila. Previously always used Dominant so a good result.

Cons: Nothing
