Decent string at a decent price.

Pros: Dominants are a good standard string at a reasonable price. Nice sound on my German/Czech made fiddle.

Cons: none really

Other: I do like the wound E set although I find the A string is usually the first to give up - the winding breaks up and comes undone sometimes sooner rather than later. Still....Decent string at a decent price.
