The only strings we will buy

Pros: My son who is Grade 5 will only use these strings on his 3/4 size violin. They sound great and hold their tune.

Cons: Nothing

Good standard strings, apart from the E.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: As expected, the usual standard Dominant strings at a good price. I have not used many other makes but these suit me.

Cons: I am not too fond of the E string and usually replace it with something less bright to match the rest of the set. I believe a lot of people do this, so maybe they could introduce an option in the set.

Other: Great service again from String Zone.

Professional

Excellent value and superb on the ear.
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: I have purchased strings at the Stringzone for several years. When I was heavily occupied with professional playing I chose more expensive strings, believing that you only get what you pay for. Now, in retirement, with less income but still a lot of playing to do, I have gone for Dominants and am finding them absolutely fine. Their tone is clear and sweet and they need hardly any wearing in.

Cons: No complaints.

Other: Good service too. Thank you.

Satisfied Customer
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Tone quality is excellent and they settle down well

Cons: Not a complaint but I don't use the E-string as I prefer to use the Pirastro Gold Label E-string. I then have spare E-Strings to give to others.

Other: None

Slight disappointment.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Good reliable set especially for those on a budget
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: They are cheap and reliable for most standard of students. Many of my colleagues use them too as they are financially reasonable to replace. They settle quickly when new, are easy to tune and can be relied upon to stay in tune for long periods of time, which is useful for students who are not confident about tuning their own violin between lessons.

Cons: I find the range of tone and dynamics can be limited with these, especially if they are played and practised on regularly. Also, once they are old, they become virtually unplayable, whereas other strings just tend to lose their brilliance.

Good strings at a good price
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: Relatively cheap to buy for a fairly good sounding long lasting string that stays in tune well.

Cons: The dominant E strings tend to be a bit harsh but using an alternative E solves this and still works out cheaper if you buy the set and then you can keep the dominant E as a spare in case it all goes wrong!
