Kaplan Amo Violin Strings
7 out of 8 found the following review helpful

Pros: it really made my violin sound more "equal", meaning that none of the strings are sticking out when changing strings. My violin is a very bright one and I love having the possibility to have dark colours, and I think that this set of strings allow that a lot, while still respecting the instrument's personality. I just made it sounding better! Definitely going to come back to it :)

Cons: nothing, really...

Mellow string for brighter violins? Not sure yet
6 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: Good clear tone and no problem with volume, nice E

Cons: The A string is rather prone to whistling, but the strings have only been on a week and probably not totally broken in. Quite high tension and not cheap.

Kaplan Amo, decent strings
2 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: The set sounds really balanced, not one string stands out, tonality wise, it is leaning towards dark-ish sound, the strings are pretty soft compared to my last strings which were Eva Pirazzi Gold, I would definitely say Eva Pirazzi gold is richer. They are overall very good strings, I got them hoping they sound similar to Eva Pirazzi gold but last longer, but they are quite different.

Cons: G and D are good but compared to Eva Pirazzi gold, EP gold G&D strings are much better.

Not for me

Pros: Efficient service with strings arriving promptly

Cons: Kaplan Amos don’t suit my instrument at all. The sound is much more harsh and the strings seem to suck up rosin. Not for me.
