Good for folk fiddle
4 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: I am a folk fiddler, and these are my favourite strings so far. I find they give quite a wide bowing area without producing any unpleasant noises. They are fairly bright but mellower than some steel cored strings I have tried. Good value at the price.

Cons: None

Other: Pete Cooper (fiddler, teacher and author of a number of books on different style of folk fiddling) uses these, which I guess counts for something!

A good set of strings at a competitive price
4 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: They have a full even tone throughout the strings and at low and high registers. They stay in tune. The notes sound a lot clearer. I think because the diameter of the strings is small.

Cons: Not a lot!

Other: I play a Paul Bailly 1875 violin.

A beautiful string

Pros: They have a nice warmth to the sound, don't take too long to stabilise.

Cons: Nothing to dislike about them

Other: These strings have been on the market for so many years, and never dissapoint, even with all the more modern synthetic strings. A winner for me.

Acceptable E string but disappointing D and G
2 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: E string was quite nice. Resonant and bright, with a decent tone and not very metallic in sound at all.

Cons: The g and d strings were very disappointing. They were dull, lacked resonance and sadly this did not change after a couple of days of intensive playing. I was so put off by these strings that I actually went and bought Eva Pirazzi replacements the next day. As I needed my new strings to settle before a masterclass, I did not try the a so cannot make a fair comment. However, I think that the quality of the g and d string speaks volumes about what the A will probably sound like. The E string I felt was the strongest out of the whole set, however when placed next to a 3/4 full set of Evah's it doesn't stand up to the competition. During the masterclass I was actually advised up change the E string before the concert the next day. I was really disappointed with these strings- I don't like to give negative feedback, however, I was really excited by the reviews I had read and was convinced that they would be amazing! They were really a waste of money.

Other: The negative feedback is not about thestringzone customer service.

Great first impression.
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: First time I've used Jargar strings and looking good so far. Their sound is nicely balanced and they are comfortable to play. I've just had them for a few days, so it will be interesting to see how long they keep their bright sound.

Cons: None up till now.

Other: I will certainly be trying these on one of my other fiddles.
