An Excellent string with a distinctive voice.
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Kaplan Amo viola strings live up to the maker's description of being warm and responsive. The viola I chose them for is exceptionally mellow. The Kaplan retained this quality but added more volume and breadth.

Cons: Not really a con - the strings settled rapidly at first, then, about a week later, seemed to need more time. Since then,they now stay reliably in tune. The strings are described as having a "stranded core." This is not a problem as one rapidly adjusts to a different texture under the fingers. Oddly, it feels as though one is playing metal strings yet the sound and lower tension is similar to gut, but stronger.

Other: There is a different tactile feel between bow hair and string and the need for a little more rosin tan with other strings, Warchal Amber for instance.
