Lovely first all metal string after 30 years

Pros: Lovely string that produces a strong warm sound, expressive and very responsive even with fast bowing, nothing harsh. Impressed enough to order a full set of Forza (replacing Obligato strings that I have happily used for the last few years).

Cons: Expensive but makes my viola sound better than ever!

Other: First all metal string for over 30 years (had Spirocore set when acquired my viola). Now looking forward to the Forza set . . . .
