Warmth and power in short scale

Pros: These strings are one of the very few that are made specifically in a short scale. My 15" viola has a playing length of only 33.5cm, so that most viola strings do not suit it very well. I was initially apprehensive of using metal strings, but these are not brash at all. They are warm and full, forceful without being aggressive. Being higher tension than the strings I am used to, they are harder to play, which is forcing me to improve my bow technique!

Cons: They don't seem to speak very well when muted, or in pp. Then again, maybe I need to improve my technique, or try a different type of mute.
