Do the job for the price

Pros: E string coped well from the beginning. Tone as expected. New G and D sound warm. Little pressure with harmonics still makes a good sound.

Cons: G and D required a lot of tuning. Strings wear out very quickly with orchestral playing. Daughter will be using Pirazzi strings after this violin has been to her luthier.

Cons: Nothing.

Other: High-speed service as usual. Many thanks.

Violin strings which aren't made out of cats.
2 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: I have been playing Tomastik Dominant violin strings for over forty years. Obviously, I have now got chronic arthritis in my left elbow which means I can't extend my arm fully and which basically hurts all the time, but you can't blame this on Irish fiddle music entirely. The great thing about this set of violin strings is that there are four of them, which is exactly the number the violin needs. It is important to remember that the thin one goes at one end and the fat one at the other end. A violin is not a ukulele.

Cons: The top e string is always a problem with Tomastik Dominants. It doesn't quite balance in tone or volume and when it gets even a teeny bit worn it is harder to tune exactly. I always buy a Wondertone solo E and keep the TD as a reserve. Always keep your old strings. In an emergency they will tune up more reliably than a new one which wants to stretch like a yoga teacher before getting down to any work.

Other: I bought my violin in Tetbury but the best one I ever played was in a workshop in the via Giulia in Rome. It cost 20,000 euros.

Highly recommended product and service.

Pros: I've been enjoying Donimant strings for many years - have tried a few others, but always go back to this brand.

Cons: There's nothing I don't like about Dominant strings.

Other: Strings were delivered super-quick!

Good strings

Pros: They've always had a good reputation and I've always found them to be decent strings.

Cons: I can't particularly think of any cons. You may consider them to be a little expensive but not compared to some strings available and if you buy cheaper ones you're likely to be compromising quality.
