Lively bright warm tone. Sound good.
5 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: Sound warm and bright compared to the Preludes and other strings I've used before. They took a few days to settle in, this is a very humid climate here. Easy to play and feel lively.

Cons: The A string looks a little unwound just above the nut, despite me fitting them very carefully following stringzone's own instructions to the letter. Keeping an eye on it, and will report back if it breaks early.

Get what you pay for.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Price

Cons: Tone inconsistent between strings.

Other: Thought I'd try a cheap set, just for comparison. The A seemed quite different from the G and D. Soon changed them for Dominants.
