A good product.

Pros: Consistent quality, suits my fiddle and suits me. Good tone when they have settled in. They last longer than some strings.

Cons: Just that the E string is a bit shrill in comparison with the other strings. Sometimes I replace it with another make.

Other: Excellent service from The String Zone as usual. Price and delivery very good.

A good buy - very pleased

Pros: The violin has a bit of a harsh tone but these strings certainly took the edge off. The strings seemed more flexible than normal resulting in quite large peg movements for small increases in pitch. Could almost do without an adjuster on the A-string

Cons: None

Very good quality of tone & value for money.

Pros: I have used Dominant violin strings for decades now & always find the last ver well, they stay in tune & produce a lovely sound. I use them on both of my violins, with the more refined tone of my orchestral instrument & with the more robust sound of my Romanian teaching/folk music violin. I think they are good value.

Cons: They need sometime to play in, depending on how much playing you do.

Other: I find String Zone very efficient in despatching my strings & they were competitively priced.
