Richer sound than helicores

Pros: Good balanced sound, I'm not that experienced with viola and the instrument is only really ok so only just trying different strings. These have improved my playing somewhat. Great offer price

Cons: None

Other: Strings are horrendously expensive to experiment with.

Good product: a lovely warm, fluid sound and feel.

Pros: Sounds good - warm and fluid.

Cons: The instructions looked a little complicated to the untrained eye, but I didn't fit them myself and the person who did had no problems! A small stain on the C string which I hope isn't a sign of some structural fault. We'll see...

A good buy at a reasonable price.
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: Settled reasonably quickly and now stay in tune, Easy response and evenness of tone across all strings.

Cons: A tendency to 'crack' with even a medium bow pressure. The A particularly disappointing in the upper registers. Limited dynamic range, generally loud with soft difficult to achieve.

Other: Different windings led me to believe these strings would be an improvement on the earlier ones. For me, tonally disappointing
